Come, let's rejoice

author of text
Psalm 95: 1, 2

Amner was organist and choirmaster at Ely Cathedral from 1610 until his death, and a fairly prolific composer of church music. Come, let’s rejoice comes from his only published collection, Sacred Hymnes of 3, 4, 5 and 6 parts (1615). With its appealing lightness of texture and dance-like rhythms, it resembles the madrigals of the time, and may in fact have been intended for home rather than church performance.
