- Edition notes: The original order of staves is 2d. - 1st. - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] for full chorus sections thereafter. The Alto part is printed in the treble clef in the source, an octave above sounding pitch. The order of parts for the trio (bars 98-123) in the source is Tenor - Alto - [Bass] - [Instrumental Bass]. The symphony at bars 119-123 is printed on the alto and tenor parts in the source, as given here: the alto part for this symphony has not been transposed by an octave in transcription.
Title: O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands
Composer: Thomas Clark
First published: 1807 in A Second Set of Psalm Tunes, p. 28
Description: This setting is headed 'Anthem. Psalm 100th.' in A Second Set of Psalm Tunes, the title page of which refers to 'Three Anthems', and so it would appear to have been primarily intended for use as an anthem. Nonetheless, the text is the full Psalm 100 in the BCP translation, followed by the Gloria Patri, so the work would be suitable for use as the canticle Jubilate Deo at Morning Prayer.
