Pascha Nostrum
The so-called "Easter Anthems" included in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and as modernized in the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, p. 83, under the title "Christ our Passover" or "Pascha Nostrum." It is here sung to the Grand Chant by Pelham Humfrey, which was the chant traditionally used for this canticle in the Church of England, with a descant by Sir Sydney Nicholson.
