Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Gloriae Dei Cantores marks the centenary of American composer Alan Hovhaness with a collection of sacred choral works entitled From the Ends of the Earth. With selections spanning Hovhaness' rich musical career, this SACD invites the listener to explore the broad range of cultural and stylistic influences (from both East and West) that the composer loved and sought to portray in his music. The critically acclaimed choir Gloriae Dei Cantores lends their hearts and voices to Hovhaness' "noble desire for the regeneration of mankind," and invites a new generation of listeners to experience his exceptional compositions.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The singing shows Gloriae Dei Cantores at their bright, enthusiastic best. The super audio format is worthy of its name, and we're supplied with the most handsome booklet I've seen in quite some time. Despite a few dead spots, this ends up a pretty special release.
