Easter Day in the Morning
Traditional English Carol / arr. Phillip Kern

Easy / Moderate
What a great idea to write resurrection words for the traditional Christmas tune, "I Saw Three Ships" to create a festive anthem for Easter morning! And, what an even better idea to also include the traditional Christmas text so that this anthem may be used for both high points in the church year! Philip Kern begins with a drum-like introduction that calls the voices to "frolic" through the opening verses. This leads to an a cappella section, and finally, grand, accompanied verses bring this thrilling anthem to its glorious ending.
