Latin. Text Source: Psalm 95. Scripture: Psalm 95.
"Come, let us rejoice in the Lord" is an uplifting dancelike motet particularly useful for choirs with more women's voices and fewer men.
The excellent edition realized for basso continuo would work beautifully supported with light organ and cello, or a cappella.
This setting of Psalm 95 would be welcomed for Christ the King, occasions of thanksgiving, praise, or Christmastide.
