Jesus Christ Is Risen Today
This festive Easter celebration opens with a fanfare and a triumphant statement of the hymn tune LLANFAIR commonly paired with the hymn texts, “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today,” and “Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise.” The middle section gives ringers a unique opportunity for expression through a subdued moment combining handbells and handchimes with vibrato technique. Momentum returns for a grand restatement of the opening with a herald-like closing reflecting our joy in the risen Savior! 81 measures. C Major and Bb Major.
