Critical Acclaim

 

  • Gloriæ Dei Cantores collaborated with The Boston Pops Orchestra on 10 Holiday Tours
    “One of the finest crafted, best blended, and innately musical ensembles with which I have had the pleasure to work.”

  • “...the choir...sings well throughout the collection. They are well balanced and blended. They display a good dynamic range, which is well controlled and they sing with commitment. ”
     
    “I adore well-executed choral music for the holidays, and the Gloriæ Dei Cantores certainly fills the bill. Sing Noel is an outstanding, no-nonsense, moving release of intensely lovely seasonal music. Every cut works here. I especially enjoyed the crisp a cappella treatment of Caroling, Caroling (perhaps the best version I have ever heard), the brassy exuberance of Ding Dong! Merrily on High, and the commanding, nuanced delivery of Masters in This Hall. Fans of choral music will thrill to the classic sounds of the Gloriæ Dei Cantores on Sing Noel. Bravo!”

  • “. . . And so I listened - The First Noel came and went as did I Wonder as I Wander. . .lush, rich and - well, was it my imagination or did I see the ghost of Jimmy Stewart, eyes twinkling. . . ”
    “Actually there's a deal of imaginative orchestration here, plenty to interest. . . seventy minutes had passed as in the blinking of an eye.”
    “They sing the Sussex Carol with beautiful tone and an eloquent, touchingly uplifting descant.”

  • “The choral artistry for which Gloriæ Dei Cantores has become known can be heard in each selection. The ageless and profound wonder of Christmas comes alive with the singing of each word and the playing of each note.”
