Jubilate CD Front Cover

Jubilate", rejoice, and that is what the Schola Cantorum Jubilate invites its audiences to do. Rejoice by means of singing and it was indeed fortuitous that this choir was founded five years ago during the Jubilee Year proclaimed by the Pope for the year 2000. Schola Cantorum Jubilate continues rejoicing by marking the fifth anniversary of its founding by means of a CD which is testimony to the commitment this dedicated team of young enthusiasts put into their mission. To rejoice together in music and to project that joy to whoever stops and listens.

The selection of works spans a very wide spectrum of styles and stretches from the Renaissance composer Josquin des Prez and the thankfully inevitable Palestrina to Bruckner and Perosi. It also includes unusual rarities like a piece composed by a king of Portugal whose 16-year reign was one of a constant struggle for independence with his next door neighbor, Spain.

The works on this CD have been recorded according to the chronological order of composition. There are some solo pieces like Caccini's Ave Maria with soprano Marouska Attard and Claire Massa at the organ, Vivaldi's Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera featuring soprano Georgina Gauci, who is accompanied by Stephen Attard. He is also at the organ in the other accompanied pieces.

The choir does not only provide admirable stylistic versatility but also offers works associated with different liturgical functions such as those associated with Holy Week, Easter-tide and Christmas. It is thus an album, which is truly one for all seasons.
