My first exposure to this piece came as an accompanist for vioin studios. "Chorus fromJudas Maccabeus" is a well known tune in the Suzuki repertoire. In my first teachingposition, I was looking for music on a very minimal budget and remembered this piece. After some research, I arranged this gem for my beginning Freshman Choir.

This arrangement of "Canticorum Jubilo" from Judas Maccabeus works well witha beginner group of middle school voices or early high school changing voice. Pleasefeel free to adapt the notes to what works best for your group. I have providedsome suggested optional notes. The Latin is not difficult and the opportunity to singsuch rich harmonies in an A Cappella setting is a very fruitful endeavor for young singers.

    I ACCIDENTALLY gave it 2 stars in my previous review, but it definitely earned 5 stars. The reason is it truly sounds more than difficult than it is. That's great part writing.

    This is a great song for an SAB choir if you have a mixture of changed and unchanged voices for your boys. It falls in a range where they can all sound successful and strong. This 3 part song sounds much more difficult than it is, which is a sign...

    of a very talented composer.
