Gaudete

Gaudete

Arranged by Classic FM’s Hall of Fame 2004 ‘top-ten-composer’ Karl Jenkins, Gaudete is presented here, both with drums and percussion and as a pure, unadulterated, a cappella version. Gaudete (“rejoice”) is an anonymous composition that was first published in 1582 in a collection of carols and other religious songs called Piae Cantiones. This collection, made by a Scandinavian called Peter Nyland, included a huge number of other Christmas melodies that have since become ‘standards’, but it only gives music for the chorus of Gaudete; the verses, which tell of the wonder of God’s arrival on earth in human form, have been taken from a Czech medieval song about the Virgin Mary, Ezechielis Porta.
