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.
