Jubilate Deo, the exciting new choral triumph by composer Dan Forrest, illuminates the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by seven different settings and languages, drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Joined by the OKC Philharmonic, the performance will feature a potpourri of works by Dan Forrest – and the experience will culminate in a stunning global celebration of joy, as Canterbury Voices sings, “omnis terra, jubilate!”



Dan Forrest has been described as having “an undoubted gift for writing beautiful music….that is truly magical” (NY Concert Review), with works hailed as “magnificent, very cleverly constructed sound sculpture” (Classical Voice), and “superb writing…full of spine-tingling moments” (Salt Lake Tribune). Dan’s music spans a wide spectrum of genres, ranging from major works for chorus and orchestra and significant concert choral repertoire, as well as instrumental works ranging from wind ensemble pieces to solo instrumental sonatas.
Dr. Forrest’s work is well established in the U.S. and around the world, and has received numerous awards and distinctions including the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer’s Award, the ACDA Raymond Brock Award, and the ALCM Raabe Prize. His choral works have been recorded by professional choirs including Seraphic Fire and VOCES8, have been featured on the BBC Proms series and national US radio and TV broadcasts, and are regularly performed in Carnegie Hall choral festivals and other international venues. danforrest.com.
