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 some characteristics of its 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 (untexted), 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! Join us at 7:00 PM at the Calvin University Covenant Fine Arts Center Recital Hall for a special pre-performance talk with Dan Forrest and Pearl Shangkuan, moderated by John Witvliet. Purchase tickets online or at Calvin University's Box Office.
