For an exciting and suspenseful beginning on Easter morning this well-written arrangement tells of the “Three Saint Marys” coming to the tomb is a winner. Sung somewhat softer than the printed dynamics but with much excitement it can lead up to the joyful proclamation of the resurrection. An interpretive dance (three women perhaps in Biblical costume) is well-suited to the piece.
