Jubilate Deo, Op 90 No 2

First line:
O be joyful in the Lord
composer
1983; dedicated to Gordon and Nancy Lamb; commissioned by the University of Texas at San Antonio and first performed in 26 April 1983 by the UTSA Choir and Chorale conducted by Julian Silantien, with Bess Hieronymus (organ)
author of text
Psalm 100

 
Mathias’s resplendent Festival Te Deum Op 28 (first performed in 1965 by the Manchester Cathedral choir under Derrick Cantrill) and O be joyful in the Lord (Jubilate Deo) Op 90 No 2 (written in 1983 for the University of Texas choir) are not strictly related, yet—as the keys blend perfectly—how brilliantly they complement each other. There is a Brittenesque ease, assurance and skill at varying textures. In the Te Deum, the men’s voice-led canon at ‘O Lord, in thee have I trusted’ is especially masterly, while the organ part of the Jubilate shows us Mathias in display vein, at his most brilliant.
