General Information

Title: O be joyful
Composer: Samuel Arnold
Lyricist: Medley of psalmic phrasescreate page

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredAnthem

Language: Unknown
Instruments: Organ

First published: 1785

Description: "Anthem . . . for the use of cathedrals and country choirs, with a part for the Organ, Piano-Forte, &c. adapted to the celebrated Overture of Artaxerxes, by Dr Arnold, organist and composer to His Majesty, &c." Artaxerxes was Thomas Arne's opera seria which achieved great popularity, and stayed in the repertoire until the mid-nineteenth century. This arrangement is as much a testament to the ubiquitous affection for Arne's piece as to Arnold's ingenuity. The phrase "country choirs" may be a generalised advertising puff, but it may equally well indicate that the anthem could be performed without organ accompaniment.

O be joyful unto the Lord; make his praise to be glorious.
O sing praises unto his name.
Sing praises unto the Lord who made the heaven and earth: who spake and they were made.
Who stilleth the raging of the sea, the noise of his waves and the madness of the people.
O come, let us worship and fall down and kneel before the Lord our maker:
for he is a great God and we are the sheep of his hand.
Let every tongue his praise proclaim.
Hallelujah. Amen.
