Symphonic Variations on “In Dulci Jubilo”
Premiered on June 30, 1984, by the Midwestern Music Camp of the University of Kansas, Claude T. Smith conducting. This work features the familiar carol, “Good Christian Men, Rejoice”. Beginning with the hymn tune, the following section features a soli opportunity for bassoon and trombone, followed by a flute, clarinet and horn trio. Modulations, tempo and meter changes add a unique flair to this holiday work which will challenge all players in the ensemble.
