The tomb stands open wide, Jesus lives today! This energetic Easter anthem from Lloyd Larson incorporates Beethoven's beloved "Hymn to Joy" along with original verses that portray the excitement of that Sunday morning when the women discovered Jesus' empty tomb. Lively syncopation contrasts a legato section that builds to triumphant finish, enhanced by optional parts for brass and timpani.
