An intricate melody rises in four measures and one octave. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. Scene 1 tells in an aria and a chorus of the resurrection, based on the Messianic anticipation in the Book of Job Job —26 and Paul 's teaching in his first epistle to the Corinthians 1 Corinthians — It begins with the "ascending fourth ", a signal observed by musicologist Rudolf Steglich as a unifying motif of the oratorio,  on the words "I know", repeated almost every time these words appear again.
The text for the chorus "Since by man came death" continues Paul's thoughts, juxtaposing death and resurrection twice. Consequently, Handel twice uses a Grave a cappella setting in A minor with chromatic lines, opposed to an Allegro with orchestra in C major in most simple harmony, switching back and forth between these extremes. Scene 2 deals with Paul's teachings on the Resurrection of the body on the Day of Judgement , as written in his First Epistle to the Corinthians.
Accompagnato and Air share three verses, 1 Corinthians — Handel breaks the text in the middle of the second verse, to open the aria with the musical idea "the trumpet shall sound". The image, first found in Exodus 19, pictures a courtly herald who blew the trumpet as a signal that the king was about to enter the throne room, a signal to stand in his honour. Towards the end, motifs like trumpet signals appear in the strings even before the last words "at the last trumpet". The Air for bass "The trumpet shall sound", marked "Pomposo, ma non allegro", is a da capo aria.
In the work's only instrumental solo, the trumpet provides motifs which the bass picks up. In "and we shall be changed", the word "changed" is treated in inventive ever-changing melismas of up to six measures. In the middle section, the word "immortality" is expressed in a lively melisma of first eight, then nine measures. Scene 3 first continues the text of Scene 2 1 Corinthians —57 , presented in recitative, duet and chorus, and ends with an Air on Paul's Assurance of salvation , as written in the Epistle to the Romans, Romans ,33— An alto recitative delivers "Then shall be brought to pass", ending on "death is swallow'd up in victory".
The movement is based on the duet for soprano and alto "Se tu non lasci amore" HWV , The scene closes with the assurance "If God be for us, who can be against us".
As a contrast to the following choral conclusion of the oratorio, it is sung by the soprano. Towards the end, Handel quotes the characteristic intervals beginning Martin Luther 's chorale Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu dir several times, leading into the final chorus. Scene 4 closes the work by visionary verses from the Book of Revelation, The creatures in heaven give praise Revelation —13 , affirmed by an extended Amen.
The chorus, with the full orchestra including trumpets and timpani, proclaims in a solemn Largo "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain", and continues Andante "to receive power — and riches, — and wisdom, — and strength, — and honour, — and glory, — and blessing". The sequence of Largo and Andante is repeated, but not exactly the same music. A fugue carries the words "Blessing and honour, glory and pow'r be unto him".
