Description
Various arrangements of the old carol Gaudete - versions in D Dorian (SABar) and in B Dorian (SAB) with or without piano. (Specially arranged for choirs in places where tenors are scarce....)

Separate piano parts are also provided for each key

The sound sample is my unaccompanied performance of the lower version


Refrain:
Gaudete! gaudete! Christus est natus ex Maria virgine, gaudete!

Bass solo:
Tempus adest gratiae, hoc quod optabamus;
carmina laetitiae devote reddamus.

Soprano solo:
Deus homo factus est, natura mirante;
mundus renovatus est a Christo regnante.

Bass solo:
Ezechielis porta clausa pertransistur;
unde lux est orta, salus invenitur.

Soprano solo:
Ergo nostra contio psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino; salus regi nostro.

[My literal translation, for convenience, not for singing]
Refrain:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Christ is born of the Virgin Mary, Rejoice!

Bass solo:
The time of grace has come, the time we desired;
let us devoutly offer songs of gladness.

Soprano solo:
God is made human and nature looks on in wonder;
the world is renewed by Christ who reigns

Bass solo:
The gate of Ezekiel that was closed
has been passed through;
where the light has risen salvation is found.

Soprano solo:
So our gathering now sings in the purification;
May the Lord be blessed, salvation to our king.
