Chorale Prelude on Christ the Lord Has Risen Today
- Co-Op Press
This Chorale Prelude is in the form of a fantasia as it uses phrases from this hymn interspersed with a lot of free material. It can serve as either a prelude or postlude. The pedal uses a syncopated eighth note rhythm during the sustained notes at the beginning. This pattern then dominates the last third of the piece and it evokes visions of Widor's Toccata.
