GAUDE ET LAETARE
By Cecilia McDowall
for SATB and organ
For this joyous piece, McDowall set a text from the Ambrosian Rite celebrating the Virgin Mary's recent motherhood. The lively organ accompaniment and strong rhythmic drive create an instantly celebratory mood, making the piece an ideal conclusion for any Christmas service.
