In Dulci Jubilo - Hieronymus Praetorius


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A very thick 8-part setting of this Christmas tune by one Hieronymus Praetorius (Not related to Michael Praetorius, though there is evidence that the two knew each other.) I recorded this in preparation for M. Praetorius' duo-choral setting of the same tune.

Soft Stately
Much slower and more stately than i'm used to hearing it at Christmas-time, but no doubt truer to its medieval origins.

Really impressive as always, listening to your stuff.

A treat.

Thank you.

Stately...
Glad you liked it - Thanks for your comment!
Yes, it is rather slow - a bit slower than I originally wanted to play it, actually - but given its shortness, I chose a more stately tempo and tried to bring out some of the motion in the middle voices.

Is it getting near Christmas already?!
Who cares, this is lovely, a very full rich sound, and what a good idea to slow it down.

Beautiful
I like this very much - when was it written (Tudor, Elizabethan?). The arrangement is beautiful.

Thanks, Grahame!
The tune (which was originally a chant,) was written in the middle 1300s, but this setting is from the Renaissance.

That
sounds authentic. Were such pieces this short? I imagine that the musicians then played one piece after another. Thanks.

Love this tempo
especially with the thick harmonies. This is so pleasant to listen and lose myself in.
