“Let Us Sing Praise!” CONCERT PROGRAM:

The program will open with Franz Joseph Haydn’s jubilant and brightly colored “Te Deum.”

These words, translated from ancient text, mean “We praise you, O God!”

The centerpiece of this concert is Dan Forrest’s glorious global “Jubilate Deo,” 

“O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands!”

MOVEMENT 1. Jubilate Deo [LATIN]

“O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands!”

MOVEMENT 2.  Ve Adthdor Vador [HEBREW and ARABIC]

“From age to age”

MOVEMENT 3. Ta cao chang de yang [CHINESE]

Psalm 100 “The sheep of His pasture”

{will not be sung in this concert}

MOVEMENT 5. Bendecid su nombre [SPANISH]

“Bless His name”

MOVEMENT 6. Song of the Earth [ENGLISH]

Our final piece, always a crowd favorite, is Robert Ray’s uplifting Gospel masterpiece,
