Now is Christ risen from the dead
Now is Christ risen is a setting of lines from Corinthians that were (and are) familiar from Messiah, though Fawcett nearly always avoids quoting from Handel directly. The work is written for full Classical orchestra with the expected trumpet obbligatos (played here on a nineteenth-century English slide trumpet) and was ‘respectfully dedicated to the Bolton Philharmonic Society’, who presumably performed it. I hope they enjoyed it as much as we have done.

from notes by Peter Holman 1998
