"A good or even a great text does not survive without a stirring tune. DIADEMATA (meaning “crowns”)... is the tune that makes a magnificent setting for the text, march-like and joyful without ever becoming mechanical or strident." Michael Hawn (Nikki Gray’s doctoral dissertation adviser)
Easter is more than a day; Easter is an entire season in the Christian year. The early Christians called this season the Great Fifty Days. It began with Easter Day and extended through Pentecost on the fiftieth day (seven Sundays). The season commemorates the fifty days that began when Jesus rose from the dead and ended when the disciples received the Holy Spirit and the Christian church was born.
