Notes and Editorial Reviews

This release includes 23 works from the very best American 20th century composers, including Charles Loeffler, Virgil Thomson, Kent Newbury, Samuel Adler, Charles Ives, and more. This three disc set is a rich treasury of music, which presents a varied program, making this a legacy which will no doubt preserve the heritage of American sacred choral music. Gloriae Dei Cantores is an internationally recognized choir with more than forty members who range in age from seventeen to seventy. The group, directed by Richard K. Pugsley, is devoted to preserving great choral music from the eleventh to the twenty-first centuries. “Their singing is startlingly superb… wonderfully warm, yet clear sonorities. They consistently deliver levels of emotional Read more intensity and aching spirituality. This is some of the finest, most inspiring American choral singing you will hear this year.” (American Record Guide) Read less
