He Is Alive!

By Joel Raney

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/he-is-alive-sheet-music/19516042

SATB choir with optional violin
Composed by Joel Raney. Christ's Love, Love, Resurrection, Easter, Sacred. Octavo. 16 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5684).

Item Number: HP.C5684

Text by Joel Raney. Scriptural Reference: Luke 24:1-9, Matthew 28:5-6.

The story of Easter unfolds in this gorgeous Joel Raney ballad that begins quietly at the tomb when the angel asks, "Why are you crying; why do you weep?" then builds with intensity and emotion as the stone is rolled away and the choir sings "open your eyes and see, open your heart and know Jesus is risen, he is alive!" A hint of "In the Garden" is cleverly woven into the music, making this an ideal Easter morning ballad. The violin part is included and effectively adds to the drama.

    We have worked on this piece for a couple weeks now. The choir had no reaction at first but they are beginning to understand and appreciate the flow. They are asking to rehearse it now. It is very singable, well within small choir(8) capability. It will be on the...

    calendar for a not too distant Sunday morning. We'll find the right scripture readings and tie it all together.

    at first listen, I thought it was the best Easter hymn I remember. We plan for our SATB quartet to sing this the sunday after Easter. Much too good to wait for next year.
