Gloriæ Dei Cantores Concert, July 6 & 7, 7:30pm
Under the direction of Richard K. Pugsley, Gloriæ Dei Cantores performed sacred choral works by two modern composers, Ēriks Ešenvalds and Arvo Pärt. These two highly sought-after composers brilliantly weave ancient melodies and musical styles with modern interpretations, creating masterpieces that are a kaleidoscope of powerful colors, rich text, and core-deep emotions that are accessible to all.
“They sing with absolute fluency and authority.”—Gramophone
Celebrating thirty years of choral artistry, Gloriæ Dei Cantore performed these modern-day musical masterpieces at the magnificent basilican-style Church of the Transfiguration, filled with frescoes, mosaics, and other works of art.
