“Symphonic Variations on In Dulci Jubilo” promotes joy and celebration. ‘In Dulci Jubilo’ is Latin for ‘in sweet rejoicing’. The lovely choral beginning features the familiar carol “Good Christian Men, Rejoice,” and forms the groundwork for this unique setting of this timeless traditional Christmas carol. This flexible arrangement allows ensembles to perform the work with as few as thirteen musicians providing accessibility and flexibility for numerous instrumentation needs, while still allowing a full ensemble sound.
