Notes & Reviews:

Karl Jenkins' latest composition, Gloria, will be premiered at the Royal Albert Hall on July 11, 2010 by The Really Big Chorus, with the English Festival Orchestra and student vocal soloists conducted by Brian Kay. Abbey Road Live will record the concert, which also features Fauré's Requiem, and the resulting CD will be for sale on the night to the performers and audience. This will be the first time a world premiere has been recorded live and made available for sale immediately following the performance. The following day, EMI Classics will release a studio recording of Gloria, paired with Jenkins' Te Deum featuring the composer conducting the National Youth Chorus of Great Britain and the London Symphony Orchestra with soloist Hayley Westenra.

bbc.co.uk - Charlotte Gardner
Accompanied by an LSO on top form, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain produce the deep, strong wall of sound needed in the punchier movements, and luscious creamy richness in the second movement. Westenra is a perfect casting...This performance and the overall likeability of Gloria will probably keep Jenkins at the top of most-performed polls for some time to come.

The Independent
The music itself may be less innovative than some of Jenkins' earlier work, but it's hard to bear any malice towards something as softly comforting as "The Prayer: Laudamus te", or as urgently involving as "The Psalm: Tehellim - Psalm 150".
