Music for Easter 3 - Victimae Pachali Laudes

The Sequence for Mass on Easter Sunday. The 'Maria' mentioned in the second verse is Mary Magdalene, who, having earlier repented of her former sinful life, and anointed Our Lord's feet with ointment and her own tears, is rewarded by being first to meet the risen Jesus. She rejoices with the words 'Christ, my Hope is risen'.
