"REJOICE!"

Rejoice! by Steven Amundson 2009

From the composer:

"Rejoice opens with a short two-note motive that comes from the famous Christmas tune, In Dulci Jubilo (Literally  "In Sweet Rejoicing").  I like to think of this opening motive as an  exclamation of the actual word "Rejoice."  Although the main melodic  statements are of my own making, The In Dulci Jubilo tune is strongly hinted at in the introduction and in the middle of the piece,  it's heard in canon between the oboe and piccolo and  quoted again in  the coda. The interval of a fourth, on which this tune begins, is  frequently employed throughout the piece.  I include several brass  fanfares and a good deal of syncopated rhythms in the hope of creating a  sense of rejoicing exuberance."
