CGB907 Gaudete!
Music Sample: CGB907 Gaudete!

Arranged for Tintabulations of Reno, Nevada, Michael Glasgow's thrilling arrangement of this Christmas tune begins with a stately introduction, easily adapted for use as a processional (concise instructions are included).  It then explodes with riveting energy, and drives to a breathtaking finish.  The title means "Rejoice!" and is often seen with the next line, "Christus es natus" (Christ is born).  It comes from the 1582 Piae Cantiones, also famous for "In Dulci Jubilo" and "Personent Hodie" (On This Day Earth Shall Ring).  Heavy on techniques and light on bell changes, with optional triangle and tambourine, this is a winner for any time during the season!  The percussion parts are included in the Full Score.
