Arr. Brian Kay: Gaudete

Books | SATTBB

Publisher: Hal Leonard
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Gaudete ("rejoice" in Latin) is a sacred Christmas carol, which is thought to have been composed in the 16th century, but could easily have existed as a monophonic hymn in the late medieval period, particularly due to its Medieval Latin lyrics. The British vocal ensemble The King's Singers recorded Gaudete for their 1990 ‘A Little Christmas Music’ album and it has remained one of their favourite, most requested songs. As sung by The King’s Singers Gaudete is arranged here for SATTBB Voices a cappella. Duration ca. 1:30.

The King’s Singers is a Grammy Award-winning British male sextet founded in 1968 at King’s College, Cambridge. The group has always consisted of six singers in total, with their membership constantly changing. Over the decades the ensemble has reached an ever-widening international audience and popularity, today appearing in around 125 concerts each year mostly in Europe, the US and the Far East.

      The tune in the verses is slightly different to what the Kings singers perform. I like it better.
      No bad points.

      A must for choirs with lots of good men's voices. It's a popular choice and this version is well worth performing.
