Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da: Exsultate Deo

Exsultate Deo

Exsultate Deo, adjutori nostro: jubilate Deo Jacob.
Sumite psalmum et date tympanum: psalterium jucundum cum cithara.
Buccinate in Neomenia tuba: insigni die solemnitatis vestrae.

Sing we merrily unto God our strength: make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob.
Take the psalm, bring hither the tabret: the merry harp with the lute.
Blow up the trumpet in the new-moon: and upon our solemn feast day.
Words: Psalm 81, vv. 1–3
Music: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c. 1525–94)
