That Easter Day With Joy Was Bright, also titled That Eastertide With Joy was Bright, arranged for Flute with a Junior/Intermediate level Piano accompanimnet in the hymnal key of D major.
This ancient hymn is performed at Easter. The beautiful tune is labeled PUER NOBIS and is a melody from a fifteenth-century manuscript from Trier. However, the tune probably dates from an earlier time and may even have folk roots. PUER NOBIS was first altered in Spangenberg's Christliches GesangbUchlein (1568), in Petri's famous Piae Cantiones (1582). Most hymnals have it in the key of D, so that is the key I arranged it in. The lyrics are noted with the music for verse. The accompaniment supports the melody allowing the flute to phrase and interpret without too much complexity.Though the harmony is somewhat reduced from the hymnal, 4-part version, it still has color and interest and works nicely accompanying the solist. Adult beginners will also get satisfaction from this arrangement, the 4 part writing in hymnals are usually to hard for this level player, that is why I arranged it so more people can enjoy this lovely Easter song. For more Easter arrangements, I also have a nice arrangement of "On This Day Earth Shall Ring" (A bit harder), Mary Did You Know (Great both at Christmas and Easter) and the secular Easter music, Easter Parade and Peter Cottontail.
