Alleluia! In Resurectione Tua

Happy Easter!

This is the day the Lord has made: all time and truth is God’s alone. Let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad, and praise surround high heaven’s throne. This is the day Christ rose from death; evil’s strong hold forever fell. This day the saints Christ’s triumph spread, and of the wonders all do tell. Hosanna in the highest strains Christians throughout the earth now raise. The highest heavens where Christ now reigns shall sing their glorious thanks and praise. (based on a hymn by Isaac Watts 1674-1748)

I love that.

And just listen to this!

Alleluia! In resurrectione tua

This is just beautiful! By Jacob Handle (1550-1591) Sung by the Cathedral singers conducted by Richard Proulx.

Alleluia! In resurrection tua Christe, Alleuia! Coelum et terra laetentur. Alleluia! Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro, Alleluia! Qui pro nobis pependit in lingno. Alleluia! Gari sunt discipuli viso Domino. Alleluia!
