Christ Arose (for congregation and orchestra) is a two-part arrangement of the beloved Easter hymn, Christ Arose. Part 1 is arranged to serve as the closer for a Good Friday service. It leaves participants “hanging” as they reflect on their Savior buried in a tomb. Part 2 is the refrain, and is designed to open an Easter Sunday morning service. It encourages the participants to eagerly rejoice in their risen Savior.
