Christmas music that doesn’t suck #6: In dulci jubilo

December 15, 2011 at 4:09 pm (Music) ()

This is probably my favorite Christmas carol, largely because I love how the text switches back and forth between English and Latin every couple of measures. Also, it is a very comfortable, good-feeling sing, which cannot be said of all of Rutter’s arrangements.

I remember the solo lines in this piece being one of the first solos I did at the American Cathedral in Paris. Happy memories! I miss Paris!

Incidentally, we are singing this at the St. James Cathedral Christmas Concert on Saturday at 7pm. Come if you can make it!
