Description

for SATB and organ or large orchestra This arrangement of the well-loved hymn stays true to the jubilation and reverence of Easter. Wesley's words and the eighteenth-century melody shine through in a sensitive reharmonization, and a recurring instrumental passage smoothly connects the verses. Reflecting common hymn-singing practice, the first verse is in unison, the second in four-part harmony, and the third returns to unison with a soprano descant, before closing with a suitably exultant 'Alleluia' and 'Amen'. Christ the Lord is risen today appears on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square's latest CD, He is Risen, which reached No. 1 in both the 'Classical Albums' and 'Traditional Classical Albums' US charts within two weeks of its release in April 2014.show more

Review quote

The formula of Mack Wilberg's arrangements for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has become familiar with a unison first verse, four-part harmony middle verse (if just three verses) and unison plus descant final verse a but it remains effective in big bright numbers such as Christ the Lord is risen today. A divisi final 'Alleluia! Amen!' rounds off a piece appropriately marked 'With exultation'. * James L. Montgomery, Sunday by Sunday (RSCM), March 2016 *show more
