Mendelssohn wrote Psalm 66, “Jauchzet Gott, alle Lande” (Shout For Joy) in 1822, when he was only 13 years old. He wrote it in a similar style to Handel's “Messiah,” full of melismas and very much in a late Baroque style. With a keyboard part realized by Advanced Women's Choir Consortium creator Kathleen Rodde, this is a wonderful new offering for college and women's community choirs.
