J:10345184:S:Chorale Prelude on Christ the Lord Has Risen Today
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 tuba uses a syncopated eighth-note rhythm during the sustained notes at the beginning. This pattern then dominates the last third of the piece, evoking visions of Widor's Toccata.
