Variants on a Mediaeval Tune

for Band Grades 3-5

Includes score and parts

"In Dulci Jubilo" is a melody which has been used by many composers, among them J. S. Bach, as the subject for a variety of musical works. Norman Dello Joio was inspired by it to compose a set of variations. They consist of a brief introduction, the theme, and five "variants" which send the mediaeval melody through five true metamorphoses, strongly contrasting in tempo and character, and utilizing the possibilities of the band to the highest degree.

Norman Dello Joio not only ranks highly as an outstanding symphonic composer, but is also keenly interested in music for the schools. He has written a number of choral works which are regularly performed by high school and college choral groups. This, however, is his first original work in the band medium.

Variants on a Mediaeval Tune was commissioned by the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation for the Duke University Band, Paul Bryan, conductor. It was first performed on April 10, 1963.
