An unusual and dramatic anthem for SATB choir (with divisions) unaccompanied The English verses, starting 'O sing unto the Lord a new song', are framed by the Latin first line 'Cantate Domino canticum novum'. The words and plainsong melody of the Veni Creator Spiritus make an unexpected and effective entry towards the end of the anthem. It is also included in Rutter's Psalmfest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cantate Domino, the attractive fifth movement of John Rutter's Psalmfest . . . is worthy of the attention of any proficient school or church choir able to subdivide confidently. Words from Psalm 96 in Latin and mainly English translations are set imaginatively with hints of Purcell, Elgar and Walton, among others, peeping through. The interpolation of a verse of Veni Creator Spiritus is inspired. * Music Teacher, Nov 2001 *
This work has similar driving rhythms to the well-known setting of the same words by Pitoni in many places, but there are new and exciting twists. The contrast between 3/8 and 2/4 time is particularly good. Although it would need a great deal of effort to obtain precision with the constantly changing metre it will be worth the trouble . . . I really enjoyed it and can recommend it strongly. * MMA Ensemble, September 2001 *
