Work Overview

Within a 'Prayer at Lamplighting' features one of the most celebrated Easter Mass Chants from the Byzantine period:

'Christ has risen from the Dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs, bestowing life'.

This chant is sung during the ceremony of the lighting of the Paschal Candle, which is conducted either on Easter Eve or immediately preceding the Easter Eucharist. The piece is centred on this intensely symbolic period where the spreading of the light from the Paschal candle throughout the congregation represents the resurrection of Christ and the Easter message of death conquered.
