Jubilate in C

First line:
O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands
composer
1961; for the choir of St George's, Windsor
author of text
Psalm 100

 
The “courts of the Lord” are mentioned in Benjamin Britten’s Jubilate Deo, but Britten’s celebration of the refuge and protection provided by Christian belief is markedly more extroverted than in Vaughan Williams’s Abinger setting. The swirling organ line and vaulting vocal parts suggest exhilaration and fervour, although the sudden hush that descends at the words “world without end” brings sudden introspection, and a reminder of the deep, unfathomable mysteries underlying God’s creation.
