Hosanna to the Son of David
O.Gibbons Lyrics

Hosanna Filio David
Benedictus qui venit
In nomine Domini
Rex Israel
Hosanna in excelsis

Hosanna to the Son of David
Blessed is He that cometh
In the name of the Lord
King of Israel
Hosanna in the highest

Cannot gett enough of this, and it's such a treat to read along. (Or even sing ).

I've been hunting for this for years and years. Last heard it on the BBC as sung by the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge over 15 years ago. All over the archives and all over youtube. I thought it might have been my imagination that I had ever heard it all. I watched every sacred music based programme in case it cropped up. And I stumbled across this completely by accident. In a youtube play list that the bots put together. Thank you very much. Duly saved.


Definitely no 'Hallelujah' in this piece;


What exact time? You may just be mishearing the words being sung.

.........there's a few more - never mind, still very grateful. ;-)

Bah hhahahahaha

That recap at 1:40 on "Hosanna in the highest places." gets me. Every. Single. Time. Heck, I'm a tenor and when the basses and alti sing it I just go "SING IT AGAIN!!!!!!"

But why is it that i Hear in the last part Hallelujah?


There are indeed several versions of this piece floating around. I sang one in college (about 20 years ago - yikes!) which I think was 4-part only (or possibly 4-part with divisis, my memory is fuzzy on that detail) where the score had NO time signature at all, just the notes/rhythms, and longer periods of rest were indicated as beats of rest. I am a bass, so we would have had 40-something beats of rest at the very beginning, and I think 30-something beats before the Hosanna comes back at the end. And this was back before listening to it on YouTube to get it in our ear was a thing, so we just had to count those rests REALLY well!


What is this tendency to sing everything with the same pulsation (this is the third morphthing video I've listened to this morning.
What is this tendency to replace 4/4 time signature with 2/2?

Are you sure it's not a computer singing this?
