The Risen Christ is an Easter cantata with carols. It portrays three appearances of the risen Christ. The first of these is to Mary Magdalene at Christ's tomb, the second to Cleopas and another disciple on the road to Emmaus, and the third to Simon Peter at the Sea of Tiberias. On each of these occasion, he is at first unrecognised. In the opening and final choruses, the words of Christ are sung by the choir.
The words of The Risen Christ have been compiled from various sources including original texts by Philip Ledger, Robin Morrish and Robert Woodings. The work also contains words by anonymous authors, two setting that have been adapted from texts by George R. Woodward and Christopher Wordsworth, as well as an extract from a poem by Olivia Ward Bush-Banks.
