Christ the Lord is risen today is an arrangement of the Easter hymn tune ‘Lyra Davidica’. Not to be confused with Rutter’s own composition, Christ the Lord is risen again, published as part of the John Rutter Anniversary Edition. With an exciting introductory fanfare composed by Rutter, this uplifting anthem provides a powerful ending to any Easter service.
Brass choir score and parts are available on sale from OUP.
