Concertato on We Know that Christ is Raised
The tune ENGELBERG is here set for SATB choir and congregation with organ, optional brass, and handbell accompaniment. Only four bells are used - G5, C6, D6, and G6-- and usually in an ostinato pattern. The brass and organ begin the piece with a grand introduction. The choir and bells enter on the first verse: "We know that Christ is raised and dies no more. Embraced by death, he broke its fearful hold, and our despair he turned to blazing joy. Alleluia!" Brass ensemble consists of two trumpets and two trombones. Set includes four Handbell parts.
