Program Notes

This work (1965) was done while I was a Ford Foundation Composer in Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Catholic Church was discarding all those beautiful books with Latin texts as the Church began using vernacular English instead of Latin. Setting this text was, for me, my impotent yelp of protest against what I felt was a barbaric series of decisions. Also, feeling as though I was drowning in a sea of wimpy choral anthems during those days, I decided to do a choral work that had some cojones.

Text and Translation

(Psalm 65, 1-2)

I-ANTIPHONA

Jubilate Deo, omnis terra, alleluia:

psalmum dicite nomini eius, alleluia:

date gloriam laudi eius,

alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 

II-ORATIO

Deus, qui errantibus,

ut in viam possint redire justitiae,

veritatis tuae lumen ostendis:

da cunctis qui christiana professione censentur,

et illa respuere

quae huic inimica sunt nomini

et ea quae sunt apta, sectari.

Per Dominum.

 

I-ANTIPHONA

Jubilate Deo, omnis terra, alleluia:

psalmum dicite nomini eius, alleluia:

date gloriam laudi eius,

alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Translation

I-

Shout with joy to God, all the earth, alleluia:

Sing ye a psalm to His name, alleluia:

give glory to His praise, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Say unto God: How terrible are Thy works,

O Lord!

In the multitude of Thy strength Thy enemies shall

lie to Thee.

Glory be to the Father.

II-

O God, who dost show to them that are in error the light of Thy truth, that they may return into the way of righteousness; grant to all who profess themselves Christians to reject those things which are contrary to that name, and follow such things as are agreeable to the same. Through our Lord.

I-

Shout with joy to God, all the earth, alleluia:

Sing ye a psalm to His name, alleluia:

give glory to His praise, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia
