Title: Behold, it is Christ
Composer: Edmund Hooper
Text: Acts 10:42-43
Description: This anthem for five voices circulated widely in manuscript copies. (Research by Peter Le Huray suggests that it is, in fact, the anthem with the most surviving copies, suggesting its broad popularity at the time.)
Original text and translations
Behold, it is Christ, which was ordained by God
to be the judge of the quick and the dead.
To him give all the prophets witness,
that through his name, whosoever believeth in him
shall receive remission of their sins.
