For SATB (with divisions) and organ.

This Easter anthem sets the second part of George Herbert's poem 'Easter', famously set in full by Ralph Vaughan Williams in his Five Mystical Songs. The opening section has an almost pastoral feel, with the sopranos and altos presenting a lilting melody in thirds, underpinned by a flowing organ accompaniment. The anthem becomes progressively more expansive and reflective, with rich textures and harmonies, before drawing to a profound close.
