Notes and Editorial Reviews

For nearly thirty years, Gloriae Dei Cantores has traveled extensively, performing in the world's finest concert halls---from London to Moscow, Belgium to Venice, and all over the United States---stirring the hearts of thousands of listeners, delighting classical music fans, and astounding critics with their versatility and interpretive sensitivity. Now, in Eternal Light, Gloriae Dei Cantores presents a "collector's edition" of some of their most beloved meditative choral works. This must-have volume is ideal for playing at home, on a commute, at the office, or any place that would be enhanced by the lush choral melodies of Palestrina, Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Argento, and others.

I’ve never heard such rapt and fathomless spiritual intensity from anybody else... The literal, yet rich sound from the choir’s home church in Cape Cod enfolds the listener in cozy sonic splendor." - AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
