This is last year’s recording. The odd tempo fluctuations (still wondering why I did it that way!) and less-inclusive text remain, because I haven’t been able to sing for about 6 weeks now. But Joy to the World is one of the great hymns of Advent, frequent used in services throughout December and January, so I’ve re-mixed it and included it in The Hymnody Project.
So here we have 3 verses, with traditional words from the great hymnwriter Isaac Watts, set to the tune ANTIOCH composed by Handel. I’ve made it a little on the low side, in Bb, to make it more accessible for congregations and community carol services.
