In *Dulce* Jubilo

An odd thing to be posting here, as it’s the melody of a carol. But if it is to be here, it ought at least to be right.

Firstly, it’s "In Dulce Jubilo" - not "In Dulci Jubilo".
Secondly, it’s in 6/8 time - not 4/4 time.
Thirdly, your abc contains some notation errors.
Fourthly, GMaj would be the usual key

This would be a much more accepable transcription:

Dulci/Dulce

Addendum to above comment: "Dulci" has been used by some, though I do not believe this spelling to be correct.

It’ll be bleedin’ Elvis next…

1) It is not a carol.
I mean, yes of course melody is derived from a carol to which Bach made most famous orchestration. That’s what choirs are singing now.
But this version is not a carol. Please take a look at Itinerant Band version, or this one from Mike Oldfield’s album (both spelled ‘In Dulci Jubilo’).

2) There is a mistake, indeed. Sorry about that I’ll fix it.

Pardon me the late comment.

P.S.
No E, I don’t like Elvis. =)

Just for the record, the correct Latin is "dulci". Neuter terminations of third declension singular adjectives end in "i". It would be "dulce" if the noun that it qualified were masculine or feminine. Just sayin’ … ;-)
