The Easter concerto Surrexit pastor bonus, for large forces, is based on a Latin responsory for Easter. The work is extant only in handwritten form, and nothing is known regarding the date of composition, although the polychoral design, with two ad libitum tutti choirs ("Capellchore") could indicate a temporal proximity to the Psalms of David 1619. On the other hand, the freer treatment of the instruments in particular suggests the Symphoniae sacrae and especially - given the work's large instrumentation - the third part, dated 1650.
