Programme Notes

Written in 2008 for the Russian tour of the Hong Kong Children’s Choir and revised in 2010 for mixed voices, Jubilate Deo is a song with jazz and gospel elements. A special feature is the use of vocal percussion. The female vocal and piano have beautiful solo passages in the middle slow section. The piece ends with a powerful “Hallelujah.”

寫於2008年,此曲為香港兒童合唱團的俄羅斯巡演而創作 (後於2010年為該團青年組改編為混聲版本),當中最有趣是運用了人聲敲擊,特顯頌歌歡快的感覺。音樂包含爵士及福音(Gospel)風格,適合高小初中或以上的合唱團。結構呈ABA三段式,其中B段有動聽的鋼琴及女聲獨奏/唱。樂曲於歡樂的Hallelujah中結束。
