Cantate Domino

composer

Psalm 96 (95)

 
This most optimistic and exuberant psalm is set for subdivided choir in a most joyful fashion, with a great deal of word-painting of the praises of the psalm and swinging, repeated bursts of happiness. Rapid vocal passages are biased towards the upper voices with much of the rejoicing and singing to the Lord illuminated by triplet activity in different proportions: choral laughter and dancing. The only ominous note is the heavily scored declamation about the Lord’s coming to judge the earth: 'Quoniam venit iudicare terram'. The short piece is bookended by meditative vocalisations which are evocative of gentle chiming, and a final whispered ‘Domino’.
