This setting from Gabrieli’s posthumous 1615 collection of Symphoniae Sacrae, is – like the piece in the 1613 print - a setting of a composite text which seems to relate to the Nuptial Mass: it is not a straightforward setting of Psalm 100 (the Anglican’s ‘Jubilate’ from Matins.) The print specifies only two voices, Mezzosoprano (high countertenor) and Tenor, with the following instruments: 2 cornetti and bassoon, 5 trombones, and organ. All except the highest cornetto part (even the lowest Bass which descends to low C) are marked 'e Voce si placet', so the piece may be performed with as many singers are available.The overall cleffing is: MT (solo voices); TrSATTTBSb, org. It opens with an (optional) instrumental Sinfonia for all 10 instruments.
