Description

This Easter anthem for SATB choir, brass, percussion, and organ is a medley containing three well-known Easter tunes, expertly woven together by Hallock in the twilight of his life. We begin with men’s voices, accompanied by organ, chanting the Sequence Hymn Victimae Paschali laudes. The text and music are attributed to Wipo of Burgundy (d. 1050?). A rhapsodic organ line, followed by brass and snare drum, propel the work toward four-part chorus singing an English translation from The Antiphoner and Grail, 1880, of the Latin text sung previously. French horn and militaristic percussion signal the arrival of the minor mode German chorale tune Christ ist erstanden; the melody is from Geistliche Lieder, 1533. Throughout this section, choir, organ (using 8’ Regaal or Voix humaine), and percussion are in dialogue with one another, while trombones undulate beneath. The chorale is answered, by women’s voices initially, with Jakob Hintze’s (1622-1702) major mode hymn tune Salzburg, singing Robert Campbell’s (1814-1868) translation of the Latin text Ad regias Agni dapes, 1632.
