Jubilate Deo, a 50-minute, 7-movement work written by Dan Forrest and published by Hinshaw Music.
“Jubilate Deo 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 characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture. Then the finale unites many of the key themes and cultures from previous movements with other material, both old and new, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!” – Dan Forrest

Overview of Jubilate Deo
This compositional masterpiece published by Hinshaw Music brings to life the Biblical text of Psalm 100 in a way that is completely unique and inspiring. Each movement is set in a different language and combines cultural aspects of the music to each language-group, while still staying true to the unique and individual styles of Dan Forrest. The movements, while each musically and stylistically different, all contain expressions of joyful reverence that make Psalm 100 come to life for every listener.
The piece was commissioned in April of 2016 by Henry Leck of the Indianapolis Children’s Choirs. The music is scored for a full choir and orchestra, with some opportunities for soli and tutti sections, as well as a treble choir part that can be used at the director’s discretion. Jubilate Deo is available to rent from Hinshaw Music for full choir and orchestra, as well as chamber and expanded chamber groups. Also, vocal scores and full scores are available for purchase.
Such an energetic and diverse piece is excellent for unifying choir members. General performance times run from about 45 to 50 minutes. Jubilate Deo is an excellent choice for all seasons of the year. Music impressively showcases both singer’s and orchestra member’s abilities. While this piece is ideal for a large and energetic choir, smaller choirs and chamber groups will also enjoy bringing this piece to life.
Each movement is laced with beautiful elements that draw listeners in and speak to their hearts. Dan Forrest uses his artistry to highlight the beautiful text of Psalm 100 in a way that has never been done before. Inspiring melodies and harmonies work together to create a masterpiece of composition that will be remembered in the choir world for years to come.
