This is an instrumental arrangement of Orlando Gibbons' anthem O clap your hands, in which I imagine Orlando visiting his contemporary Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice and working on this piece with

him for a performance at St Mark's.
The original 8 part anthem has been split into two groups of instrumentalists (8 wind and 8 brass) who answer each other antiphonally and sometimes play together.
All the notes are Orlando's but I have made a few octave changes to fit the instruments more effectively.

The pdf file contains score and parts.
The sound sample is an electronic preview.

The words of the original anthem are from Psalm 47 (including the lesser Doxology)

O clap your hands together, all ye people: O sing unto God with the voice of melody.
For the Lord is high, and to be feared: he is the great King upon all the earth.
He shall subdue the people under us: and the nations under our feet.
He shall choose out an heritage for us: even the worship of Jacob, whom he loved.
God is gone up with a merry noise: and the Lord with the sound of the trumpet.
O sing praises, sing praises unto our God: O sing praises, sing praises unto our King.
For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon his holy seat.
The princes of the people are joined unto the people of the God of Abraham:
for God, which is very high exalted, doth defend the earth, as it were with a shield.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
