This rousing Jubilate was written in 2009 for Matthew Owens and the choirs of Wells Cathedral as a companion piece to the composer’s Winchester Te Deum. With its strong melody and rich textures and harmonies, this work will prove immensely popular with all lovers of Rutter’s music. The arrangement is written for combined Concert Band and Chorus, but may be performed by Concert Band alone. The choral part is included in the score, but is not part of the electronic download. The arrangement is compatible with the published vocal score, X505, ISBN 9780193366466, available to buy from Oxford University Press or the Press’s international sales agent(s).
Bands may enjoy performing this antiphonally, placing the brass apart from the rest of the ensemble.
