Christ being raised from the dead
When psalmody composers wrote anthems they tended to imitate the idiom of cathedral music. Christ being raised from the dead by Stephen Jarvis looks back to the previous century: much of it is in the idiom of Restoration verse anthems, with rapid changes of time and quick-fire contrasts between solo voices and choir, though the opening bass solo even recalls pre-Civil War composers such as Orlando Gibbons and Thomas Tomkins. Jarvis was one of the most inventive and accomplished psalmody composers, though virtually nothing is known about him.

from notes by Peter Holman 1998
