(from Canticles of Time: Symphony No. 2)
Duration: 11 mins.
This Finale from Jones’ choral symphony can also stand alone as a concert piece of immense power and rejoicing. Spiraling out with successively larger dimensions until it reaches its final triumphant moment, the work takes the listener on a journey to the transcendent experience embodied by its title, Gaudeo (I rejoice!).
- “…a highly exuberant affair…builds to a busy, convuluted, joyous finale.”
---William Albright, Houston Post
- “We were standing, applauding and cheering. Rejoicing.”
---Danny McKenzie, Jackson Clarion-Ledger
