Jubilate Deo

SATB divisi, 2’50”

Jubilate Deo is one of the most frequently used Psalms in liturgical worship. The Psalmist invites the people of God to approach Him and exhort the name of God with thanksgiving. I found it apt to reorder the stanzas of this Psalm, as God’s love is freely shared with anyone who would first enter his gates. As with the derived word, “Jubilant”, this piece should be energetic, joyful and exuberant.

World premiere by the Choir of King’s College, Aberdeen, directed by John Frederick Hudson, 7 March 2018. The piece is commissioned by and specially dedicated to Margaret Carlaw and Derek Ogston CBE.
