Novo profusi gaudio

author of text

Matthew Martin’s Novo profusi gaudio (‘News of great joy’) heralds the Christmas season with a bang. A motet which draws upon medieval texts in English, Latin and French, it captures the excitement of the Nativity story from the first exuberant declamation of the refrain at the beginning of the piece to the final statement of it at the end. Hemiolas and syncopated rhythms drive the music forward, while extended chromatic harmonies give it an otherworldly dimension.
