Christ the Lord Is Risen Today from Lyra Davidica (1708), and He Is Risen by Joachim Neander, a seventeenth century German hymn writer, are arranged in a special Easter medley. Harp 1 and Harp 2 are best played on pedal harp, while Harp 3 and Harp 4 can be played on lever as well as pedal harp. In the accompaniment there are repeated seconds and scale patterns that add to the celebration of these beloved melodies, and make this arrangement unusual as well as exciting. Performance time for Christ Is Risen is five minutes.
The arrangement comes with separate copies for First Harp, Second Harp, Third Harp, and Fourth Harp and an Ensemble Copy showing the four parts together.
