In dulci jubilo

14th century German. 1601 harmony
author of text

The element of mystery, so far removed from everyday experience as to demand a leap of faith, is present in the words and music of In dulci jubilo, supposedly taught by angels to Heinrich Seuse or Suso, a fourteenth-century German Dominican monk and mystic, known to his contemporaries as ‘Servant of the Eternal Wisdom’. The carol’s dance-like melody, in fact, predates Suso’s mix of German and Latin words by at least a century. Robert Lucas de Pearsall, a wealthy Bristolian and owner of a ruined castle overlooking Lake Constance, created his sumptuous double-choir setting for the Karlsruhe Choral Society in 1834. He later widened its reach by translating the German text into English for the Bristol Madrigal Society.
