"Rejoice, rejoice" is is a contemporary setting for a cappella Mixed choir of SATB voices on a Latin poem published in the collection "piae canciones" 1582.

The style is in contemporary idiom but reminiscent of Renaissance modal writing. Also available in SSAA voices. It can be performed by a choir or 4 soloists. The vocal lines can be easily doubled by instruments.

(refrain)
Gaudete, gaudete!
Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine, gaudete!

1. Tempus adest gratiæ
Hoc quod optabamus,
Carmina lætitiæ
Devote reddamus.

2. Deus homo factus est
Natura mirante,
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante.

3. Ezechielis porta
Clausa per transitur,
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur.

4. Ergo nostra contio
Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino:
Salus Regi nostro.

(refrain)
Rejoice, rejoice!
Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary, rejoice!

1. It is a time of grace
This is what we hoped for,
Songs of joy
Let us devoutly sing.

2. God has become man,
All of nature marvels,
The world is renewed
Through the kingdom of Christ.

3.Ezechiel’s portal
Is closed for transit,
Hence the light is born,
Salvation is found.

4. Therefore let our assembly
Sing praises now for joy;
Bless the Lord:
Our King of Salvation.
