Easter Song Of TriumphAustin C. Lovelace

Who needs the piano when the voices sound this good on their own? Joseph Graham and David Angerman provide a real winner with this unique approach to the Easter celebration. The highly animated original gospel tune "Hear The Music! Jesus Is A-Risen!" makes use of the traditional spiritual My Lord, What a Morning! but turns the text a bit to make it ideal for Easter acclamations. Here is a classic approach to the quintessential Christ the King anthem "Crown Him With Many Crowns". An a cappella section and verse with descant color this anthem for a spectacular presentation. There are lots of options with this ideal opener or congregational participation number. Written in Haitian "rara" style, Alelouya by Emile Desamours captures the celebratory nature of this musical style in an exuberant anthem proclaiming Christ's resurrection. Sung a cappella in the Haitian Creole dialect with finger snaps and tongue clicks, the joy and ecstasy of Easter overflow. For choirs that may find the Haitian text a bit too challenging, Alelouya will also be very effective performed using the English text. This is a truly electric piece! The useful collection of a cappella benedictions "Three Linten Benedictions" from David Angerman and Barbara Furman is especially designed for use during Holy Week and Lenten services. There is not much service music devoted to this important time and this needful trio will be helpful indeed. The organ may quietly play with the singers for ease of performance. Introspective. The vigorous vocal fugue, sung a cappella, would make a dynamic worship opener for Easter. Written in classical style, the opening vocal lines imitate a trumpet fanfare. Descriptive text and evolving layers of color and texture make this fresh resurrection anthem a true delight. The title says it all... "Easter Song of Triumph".
