Christ the Lord Is Risen Again
Eight bells ranging from G5 to A6 ring a joyful peal as an additional accompaniment throughout most of this Easter anthem based on the medieval French melody Orientis Partibus. A separate score is available for bells and brass/percussion. The text begins: "Christ the Lord is ris'n again! Christ hath broken ev'ry chain! Hark, the angels shout for joy, Singing evermore on high." Brass ensemble consists of 2 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, French Horn, and Timpani.
