Jubilate, often Jubilate Deo, is the musical rendering of the 100th Psalm (“O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands”) Musically it is ancient with Jewish versions dating back before Christ.

It often replaces the Benedictus in the Anglican morning service (Matins.)

Henry Purcell, Handel, William Walton, Benjamin Britten and Leonard Bernstein have written notable (and singable!) versions of it.
