Jubliate Deo! - (O Be Joyful in the Lord!) by Dan Forrest

Songs of Celebration by Paul Basler

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-groups musical culture with the composer's own musical language. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, Omnis terra, jubilate! - all earth rejoice!"

Songs of Celebration is a cycle of six songs celebrating the American spirit. They include Psalm 150, Ubi Caritas et Amor (where charity and love are found), Be Thou My Vision, Sing to the Lord, Psalm 23 and Alleluia.

Force of Nature Leif Bjaland, Conductor Beethoven Symphony No. 6, in F major, Op. 68 "Pastoral" Stravinsky "The Rite of Spring" The WSO concludes its 80th season with a celebration of nature, courtesy of two of the greatest composers the world has ever known. Beethoven saw nature as a refuge, a place to escape the agonies of the world. His Pastoral Symphony is an expansive, lyric respite for this angry revolutionary of 19th century music. Stravinsky saw nature in all its wildness and spring as a rebirth of life from roots as ancient as the earth itself. His music for the ballet The Rite of Spring stirred sensation when it was premiered in 1913, changing the course of musical history forever.
