Now Is Christ Risen from the Dead, 1905. Harvey Bartlett Gaul, 1881-1945. Music Division, Library of Congress. Call number: M2076.G

Now Is Christ Risen from the Dead is an Easter anthem for soprano solo, SATB mixed chorus, and organ, published in 1905 by William A. Pond & Co., New York. The text is taken from I Corinthians 15:55–57: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

The anthem opens with a recitative-like introduction in C-major, set for soprano solo. The key modulates to A-major and a rousing 3/4 meter, as the full choir enters in declamatory octaves, "O death, where is thy sting." That music returns before a meter change to common time, Maestoso. Gaul sets "Christ being rais'd, die thee no more," to a steadily rising line in the voices and large ff chords in the organ. A con moto "Alleluia" concludes the work with a rousing return to triple meter.
