  • Preservice Music at 9:45 a.m.

    Christus Vincit Joseph Noyon, arranged by

    Gerre Hancock (1934 - ) Christ has conquered; Christ our sovreign, Christ reigns forevermore! Glory be to the

    Father, and to the Son, and the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and

    forevermore, world without end. Amen.

    Sing Joyfully Unto God William Byrd

    (1543 1623) Sing joyfully unto God our strength; sing loud unto the God of Jacob. Take the song, and

    bring forth the timbrel, the pleasant harp and the viol. Blow the trumpet in the new moon,

    even in the time appointed, and at our feast day. For this is a statute for Israel, and a law of

    the God of Jacob.

    Magdalen, Cease from Sobs and Sighs Arranged by Peter Hurford

    17th Century German Easter Carol (1930 - ) Magdalen, cease from sobs and sighs; wipe the teardrops from off thine eyes. Simon the

    leper's feast is o'er; Christ today needs thy nard no more. Now thousand times may'st thou

    rejoice, now thousand times uplift thy voice. Alleluia.

    Magdalen, bind upon thee now garland of gladness o'er thy brow. Banish'd afar is grief and

    pain; welcome is sunshine after rain. For Jesus Christ the world hath freed, triumphing

    over death indeed. Alleluia.

    O Clap Your Hands Orlando Gibbons

    Psalm 47 (1583 1625) O clap your hands together, all ye people; O sing unto God with the voice of melody. For

    the Lord is high and to be feared; He is the great King of all the earth. He shall subdue the

    people under us, and the nations under our feet. He shall choose out an heritage for us,

    evn the worship of Jacob, whom he loved. God is gone up with a merry noise, and the

    Lord with the sound of the trumpet! O sing praises unto our God. O sing praises to the

    Lord our King. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with the

    understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon his holy seat. For God,

    which is highly exalted, doth defend the earth, as it were with a shield. Glory be to the

    Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now, and ever

    shall be, world without end. Amen.

  • In Josephs Lovely Garden Arranged by Clarence Dickinson

    Traditional Spanish Easter Carol (1873 1969) In Joseph's lovely garden the Lord Christ's tomb was made,and there His broken body to

    rest was gently laid. A great rock strongly sealed it, that death might have full sway; but

    God sent down His angel, to roll the stone away. When dawn was faintly breaking across

    the garden fair, three women entered weeping, bearing spices rare. Then spake the

    guardian angel, in shining raiment bright, "He whom ye seek is risen, and death is

    vanquished quite!" O angel of the garden, descend to us today, and comfort all our

    sadness and drive death's fear away. We all are sorrow laden, speak to our hearts we pray,

    "He whom ye love is risen, and lives with Christ always!" O Jesus, blest Redeemer, all

    praise to Thee we bring; no power of death could hold Thee our Saviour, Lord and King!

    As Thou hast ris'n all glorious, may we one day arise, o'er sin and death victorious, in Thy

    blest paradise.

    Jason Weisinger tenor; Colleen Flynn, soprano

    Justin Pomietlarz, conductor

    CHOIR PROCESSION (The congregation may stand.)

    Victimae Paschali Plainsong Sequence, Mode I

    Ascribed to Wipo, 11th Century Christians, to the Paschal victim; offer your thankful praises! A lamb the sheep redeemeth:

    Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father. Death and life have contended

    in that combat stupendous: the Prince of Life, who died, reigns immortal. Speak, Mary,

    declaring what thou sawest wayfaring. " The tomb of Christ, who is living; the glory of

    Jesus' resurrection. Bright angels attesting, the shroud and napkin resting. Yea, Christ my

    hope is arisen: to Galilee he goes before you." Christ indeed from death is risen, our new

    life obtaining. Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning! Amen. Alleluia.

    (The congregation may sit.)

    I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me, Psalm 122 C. Hubert H. Parry

    (1848 1918) I was glad when they said unto me, we will go into the house of the Lord! Our feet shall

    stand in thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built as a city, that is at unity in itself. Glory

    and wisdom and power and honor! O pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper

    that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and plenteousness within thy palaces.

  • Surgens Jesus Orlando di Lasso

    (1532 1594) Rising (from the dead), Jesus, our Lord, standing in the midst of his disciples, said: "Peace

    be unto you." Alleluia. Rejoice did the disciples at the sight of the Lord. Alleluia.

    Christ, Our Passover Is Sacrificed For Us Will C. MacFarlane

    (1870 1945) Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us; therefore let us keep the feast: not with old

    leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread

    of sincerity and truth.

    Christ, being raised from the dead, dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him.

    For in that He died, He died unto sin once; but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God.

    Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin: but alive unto God through

    Jesus Christ our Lord!

    Christ is risen, is risen from the dead: and become the first fruits of them that slept. For

    since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam

    all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is

    now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

    Aurora Depaul, soprano; Holly Holdaway, alto

    Christopher Wietig, tenor; Ben Pfeil, bass

    Angelus Domini Claudio Casciolini

    (1670 - 1759) The angel of the Lord descended from heaven and rolled the stone away, and sat upon it

    and said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek the crucified; but He is

    arisen. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Alleluia

    Mary Kay Atlas, soprano; Christina Lynch, soprano

    Holly Holdaway, alto; Boris Van Druff, tenor

    Brian Zunner, bass

    My Master From a Garden Rose Eleanor Daley

    (1955 - ) My master in a garden lay, perfumed with spices rare, for tender hands had laid him there

    to rest amid the roses. Twas on a cross they laid him bare, and pierced his hands with

    nails, that we poor men might live again and be with him in glory. Alleluia. Alleluia.

    My master from a garden rose to go for us to heavn, and he will come and take us there, to

    be with him, forever. Alleluia. Alleluia.
