The Jubilate was commissioned by the Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir to celebrate their 80th anniversary. Available in English and Welsh, for TTBB and SATB (this is the SATB Welsh version), the canticle is an outburst of joy and should be sung with drive and energy. Quaver movement should be kept very light in general, but the parts marked legato should provide a contrast to the outer sections. To make this piece possible to perform in a variety of venues, it is possible to play the accompaniment as a piano duet, in which case the pedal part should be played in octaves. When accompanied on the organ, registration should be bright and crisp.
