Rise was commissioned by Lions Youth Brass for the 2016 National Youth Brass Band Championships and is an original Brass Band work based upon the Christian Hymn Jesus Christ Is Risen Today, widely known as the Easter Hymn. Originally written in the fourteenth Century as a Bohemian Latin Hymn, it gained popularity in the 18th Century when John Baptist Walsh translated the text.

This composition takes short motifs from the melody, initially setting them in fanfare figures. There is a central section which explores a lively rhythmic ostinato before the Hymn is set in full in the final part of the piece.
