John Joubert

John Joubert

John Joubert (born 20 March 1927) is a British composer of South African descent, particularly of choral works. He has lived in Moseley, a suburb of Birmingham, England, for over 40 years. A music academic at the universities of Hull and Birmingham for 36 years, Joubert took early retirement in 1986 to concentrate on composing and has remained active into his 80s. Though perhaps best known for his choral music, particularly the carols Torches and There is No Rose of Such Virtue and the anthem O Lorde, the Maker of Al Thing, Joubert has composed over 160 works including two symphonies; violin, piano and bassoon concertos; and seven operas.

John Joubert : Carols & Anthems for Mixed Voices

Review: John Joubert's compositional range is considerable, yet it is with his short choral works in the Anglican tradition that his mastery has been best appreciated. Here for the first time collected in one handsome volume are a dozen of the finest, with texts from both the biblical and non-liturgical. This anthology from a lifetime's output is convincing proof of a composer who still has much new to say in this most demanding medium.

Songlist: Christ is Risen, There Is No Rose, Glory and Honor, The Souls of the Righteous, Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge, O Lord, Maker of All Things, O Praise God In His Holiness, The Beatitudes, The Christ-Child Lay, Coversdale's Carol, All And Some Nowell Sing We, Hymn To The Virgin

John Joubert : Five Songs Of Incarnation

Review: Five Songs of Incarnation is planned to be performed as a cycle in celebration of the Nativity. Each song is prefaced by quotations from the first chapter of St. John's Gospel set for tenor solo and SATB unaccompanied. Although the work is designed as a single entity to be performed without a break, individual songs may be performed separately, with or without their respective preface. Four of the songs are reworkings of carols from the composer's earlier Five Carols for Five Voices, Op. 78. The central song, I Sing of a Maiden, is new, as are the prefaces for tenor solo.

Songlist: I Sing Of A Maiden, Let Us Gather Hand In Hand, Make We Joy Now In This Feast, Of A Rose, A Lovely Rose, When Christ Was Born Of Mary

Louis Halsey Singers : John Joubert Choral Music

Review: Hurray for the British Music Society! I say that with unabashed partisanship. Over many years their promotion and support of British music has been without equal and because of their sterling efforts it is possible to hear and study music of real quality that might otherwise be overlooked. A perfect example of that is this disc of Choral Music by John Joubert. It is my strong belief that Joubert's music is still grossly undervalued. I think he has the dubious honour of being one of the most under-appreciated of living British composers. One of the great delights of the reanimation of the Lyrita label was the discovery of Joubert's 1st Symphony and that combination of melodic flair, tonal beauty and formal control is much in evidence in his choral writing too. The more I listen to this disc the more individual his voice becomes - for any collector interested in British 20th century choral writing this is obligatory listening. This is a reissue of a recording originally made in 1975 - the BMS have labelled it "historic" which it is purely in a documentary sense - the quality of performance and recording is first rate. The value of this disc is much enhanced by the presence of an autobiographical note by the composer (updated in 2006) as well as his own descriptions of the chosen works. The music divides fairly evenly into works for unaccompanied choir and those accompanied with organ. Joubert favours the straight four-part SATB which gives the music a spiritual simplicity and clarity of utterance that I find most powerful.

Songlist: O Praise God in His Holiness, Libera Plebem, O Tristia Secla Priorum, Solus ad Victimam, Sleep Canticle, Three Hymns to St Oswald, Nowell, How are my Foes Increased, Lord!
