In Dulci Jubilo is a traditional German carol that dates back to the 14th century. The text is in both Latin and German and it is believed to be written by Heinrich Seuse, a Dominican friar and writer. The English carol, Good Christian Men, Rejoice, is based on the melody of In Dulci Jubilo. The only difference between the two carols is that Good Christian Men, Rejoice has one extra measure in the second phrase of the melody. The composer of the melody is not known, but the song appears in several hymnals from the Middle Ages.
