William Jackson, I will arise Untitled Lent Horizontal
William Jackson, who was born in Exeter in 1830, was a chorister at the Cathedral, and then a pupil of John Travers in London before returning to Exeter as Cathedral Organist in 1777, where he remained until his death in 1803. As well as much excellent church music, he wrote secular works including some popular operas.

This anthem is suitable for the Fourth Sunday of Lent in Year C of the Revised Common Lectionary, when the Gospel Reading is the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
