“In Dulci Jubilo”: The Flowering of a Mount Musical Tradition

candles feature

The holiday brings traditions—old and new. This year’s choral, wind ensemble and string ensemble will perform “In Dulci Jubilo” on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception.

Professor and Chair of Visual and Performing Arts Andrew Rosenfeld, D.M.A, will introduce a new arrangement of a Christmas carol “A Holy Child to Know,” composed by Paul Singleton, to a text by Michael Singleton, father and son respectively of John Singleton, C’86, MBA’87. John is delighted to contribute to the arts in this way—with the help of his musically inclined father and son. He hopes the performance of this carol will inspire more Mount students to understand how the arts develop our capacity to be more fully human.

Ensemble directors, Rosenfeld, Associate Professor of Music Mark Carlson, D.M.A., and Lecturer James Tung are pleased to invite the Mount community and the general public to enjoy this program featuring works inspired by the music of the medieval, Renaissance and baroque eras. Rosenfeld believes the concert is a wonderful way for the Mount community to celebrate the season of Advent and Christmas. He adds: “Follow the candles to the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and be delighted with the talents of the Mount students demonstrating a Catholic and musical heart.”

 “In dulci jubilo” is Latin for “in sweet rejoicing” and is taken from the traditional Christmas carol more commonly known as “Good Christian Friends, Rejoice.” This serves as the theme of gathering the Mount family in Christmas cheer and love.
