He Is Risen! is an Easter musical drama by Lloyd Larson. Approximately 7 minutes long, it is designed for performance within the framework of a regular Easter service. The quiet instrumental prologue and narration recall Easter dawn. After a reflection on the crucifixion, we hear the joyous strains of the brilliant chorus, "He Is Risen!" The majestic hymn, "The Day of Resurrection," ingeniously sung to Samuel Wesley's melody, "Aurelia," concludes the work. Available in both SATB and SAB voicings, it features optional narration, soloist and congregation. Smaller choirs will love the solo trumpet obbligato (opt., part included). Larger choirs will thrill to Lloyd's dynamic orchestration (opt. InstruPax and A/P CD available separately).
