“. . . an excellent introduction to the sacred music of this fascinating and deeply spiritual composer.”
—The Diapason/January 2015
Gloriæ Dei Cantores marks the centenary of American composer Alan Hovhaness with this collection of sacred choral works: Alan Hovhaness, From the Ends of the Earth. With selections spanning Hovhaness’ rich musical career, this SACD invites the listener to explore the broad-ranging cultures and styles from East and West that the composer loved and sought to portray in his music. The critically-acclaimed Gloriæ Dei Cantores lend their hearts and voices to Hovhaness’ “noble desire for the regeneration of mankind,” and invite a new generation of listeners to experience his work.
“In the superb hands and voices of Gloriæ Dei Cantores, Hovhanness clearly aligns himself with a higher authority.”
