This festive prelude is based on perhaps the best-known hymn tune of all time, HYMN TO JOY, in Joel Raney’s exciting series of piano/organ duets, with SATB choir entering at the conclusion for an optional choral introit. An alternate text is provided using Brian Wren’s “Christ Is Risen! Shout Hosanna!” converting this into a thrilling Easter Day celebration. Both keyboard parts and reproducible pages of both texts for the choir are included. The optional 3-5 octave handbell part, arranged by Arnold Sherman, is available separately.
