Christ the Lord Is Risen" Today is a Christian hymn associated with Easter. Most of the stanzas were written by Charles Wesley, and the hymn appeared under the title Hymn for Easter Day in Hymns and Sacred Songs by Charles and John Wesley in 1739. It remains a traditional processional hymn on Easter Sunday.<br> <br> The hymn is a variation of an earlier hymn Jesus Christ Is Risen Today, a 14th-century Latin hymn which had been translated into English and published in Lyra Davidica in 1708 (and later in 1749 in Arnold's Compleat Psalmodist). In some hymnals, Jesus Christ Is Risen Today is in fact the 3 stanza Compleat Psalmodist version with one or more of the additional stanzas written by Wesley appended.<br> <br> I created this simplified arrangement from the United Methodist Hymnal (No. 302) for the Sierra Vista United Methodist Church (SVUMC) in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The piece covers just overa single octave and is is octave-doubled for each member of the Children's Handbell Choir and voice choir (SATB). The purpose of this arrangement is to introduce the children to the basic concepts of ringing, note reading, timing and teamwork.
