About Joy to the World (arr. Berkey)
Joy to the World is a Christmas hymn familiar to all of us in spite of its somewhat confusing history. With importance of text constantly in mind, this setting makes use of Isaac Watts’ words and the tune usually known as Antioch. In this arrangement, the third verse words appear at the outset in a modal treatment which is fast overcome by 20th Century rhythms and a polymetric combination of ostinato and hymn tune. Word painting occurs as we “repeat the sounding joy,” but the “wonders of His Love” eventually surface triumphant.
