Good Christian Men, Rejoice

(click the title to view and hear online)


Good Christian Men, Rejoice was originally a Latin Christmas carol, In Dulci Jubilo. The lyrics were translated by John Mason Neale in the eighteenth century.  The origin of the music is unknown.


This easy three-part arrangement features the melody in Part III (cambiatas) accompanied by angelic voices, Parts I & II (trebles) proclaiming "Noel."  The keyboard  accompaniment simulates church bells.  The delicate sound of the finger cymbals add a delightful rhythmic emphasis.
