Review quote

Christ the Lord is risen again! takes us into a different musical world; here is a work of true quality. From the opening fanfares, the SA 'alleluias' and the upward rising main theme, the arrangement captures a mood of joy and spirit so befitting these wonderful words. This would undoubtedly provide a vibrant and energy-laden opener to any Easter Day service. In the manner of what we have come to expect of Willcocks, this arrangement is full of inspired moments . . . All of these combine to provide a work that will not be beyond the capability of most church choirs and one which will inspire both the singers and the listeners. * Music Teacher, March 2003 *show more
