In dulci jubilo

The original melody with its macaronic German and Latin text originated in Leipzig in the fourteenth century. The English translation of the German portions (retaining the Latin) was made by Robert Lucas de Pearsall in 1837. In Matthew Culloton’s recent a cappella adaptation (2012), we hear the original melody sung four times, twice by the sopranos and once by the tenors and altos. It is woven through a continuously varied texture in which the 'sweet joy' expressed in the ancient text is happily sustained.
