* based on the tunes Christ ist erstanden and Victory, this joyous work begins with unison statements of the opening chorale alternating with punctuating chords that highlight each phrase * dynamic contrast as the second chorale, Victory, is introduced, recommending the use of a secondary manual, and reduced voicing * running eighth notes leading into chordal statements of the chorale propel the work with energy and direction * Dr. Lau uses tempo augmentation in the final section to give a sense of grandeur, culminating with a final statement of the opening choral phrase in pedal octaves beneath a sustained E Major chord. * excellent postlude for the Easter season!

This piece incorporates the hymn tunes Christ ist erstanden and Victory. Each phrase of the hymn is set off by a short manuals only fanfare, hinting at polychords. The music is not difficult to learn and reads easily. - "The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians" March 2006.
