A jubilant song

First line:
O to make the most jubilant song
1993; commissioned by Worlds of Fun Festival of Music in Kansas City
author of text
lines from Poem of joys in Leaves of Grass

A jubilant song is a celebration of the joy of singing—a suitable response to a commission for the Worlds of Fun Festival of Music in Kansas City. Clausen draws excerpted lines from Whitman’s poem A song of joys. The lively music employs mixed metres and elements of counterpoint to provide equal interest for all voices. The music shifts to a lavish, cantabile style in its middle section which expresses the many joys present in the spirit of singing.
