“In Dulci Jubilo” / “On Horseback” is a single by musician Mike Oldfield, released in 1975. The prominently festive single features an instrumental version of a Christmas carol, “in dulci jubilo”, as well as the finale-song from Oldfield’s Ommadawn album, “On Horseback”.

Mike Oldfield’s “In Dulci Jubilo” is an instrumental version of the German traditional Christmas carol of the same name, known best in England as “Good Christian Men Rejoice”. Mike Oldfield had recorded another version of this song as the B-side to his previous single, “Don Alfonso”, which did not chart, playing all instruments himself. Later, he felt a better version could be done, and re-recorded it in October 1975 at the Manor, but incorporating some of the previous version’s backing tracks recorded November 1974 at the Beacon, his home studio.
