Jubilate Deo - Choral Arts Society of Davidson College

Choral, Classical

Celebrating the conclusion of our 10th Anniversary season, Davidson College Choirs and the Choral Arts Society of Davidson join with professional instrumentalists from the Charlotte Symphony to perform living composer Dan Forrest’s newest major work, Jubilate Deo! Forrest’s composition brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines select characteristics of each language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. Movements include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, Song of the Earth, and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!”
