Synopsis

Album Description
Gloriae Dei Cantores, critically acclaimed for their interpretations of American music, present an exciting collaboration with Grammy Award-winner Mark O'Connor. Featured on this recording is a 15-minute commissioned work by O'Connor, "Let Us Move," with violin obligato. Also featured are arrangements of beloved hymns and folk songs from Appalachia and the South. Exploding with energy and excitement, this must-have album presents a new American classical style of music, inspired by the rich American folk tradition. "Nothing could have prepared me for the day I first heard this music sung back to me. . . . Gloriae Dei Cantores' voices sounded like angels descending from Heaven, delivering and rendering my music in a way that seemed to shake the rafters and elevate the spirit." ?Mark O'Connor, February 2001

CD Reviews

American sound at its best
04/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found the new piece written by Mark O'Connor to be a wonderful sound that stirred the American Pride in me. I also found the pieces arranged by Alice Parker to be sung with excitement and accuracy- qualities lacking in most choral groups todayI highly recommend this recording."
