That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright
The director is given a choice to use this selection for Advent with the title "On Jordan's Bank the Baptist's Cry" or for Epiphany with the title "What Star Is This, with Beams So Bright" or for Easter with the main title. The hymn tune is Puer Nobis by Michael Praetorius (1571-1621). A few special techniques are used throughout the 136 measures. TD, LV, and RT are used, and handchimes may be substituted in the slow middle section if desired.
