Gloriae Dei Cantores

1988 -
born in Orleans, MA
Gloriae Dei Cantores (Singers to the Glory of God) is a 40-member mixed choir devoted to performance of religious choral music. The range of repertory is very broad, encompassing works from the eleventh through the twenty first centuries. The ensemble has made more than 30 recordings on its own highly successful eponymous label. The CDs include a mixture of genres and themes, from Christmas music to Gregorian chant, from Mozart to Rubbra and Copland, from ancient and modern hymns to Spanish religious music. The choir often sings a cappella in concerts and on recordings and performs for weekly services at the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, MA. It has made numerous tours of the United States and Europe.

The roots of Gloriae Dei Cantores date to 1976, when members assembled informally as an ecumenical choir active in the Cape Cod area. Director Elizabeth Patterson gradually shaped the group into a first-rate choir. In 1987 the ensemble traveled to Cambridge, England, for brief studies with George Guest and Stephen Cleobury. The former was impressed with the choir's collective talent and believed it worthy to move from amateur to professional status.

Patterson eventually accepted his judgment (or allowed it to merely confirm her own), and the ensemble adopted the name Gloriae Dei Cantores in 1988. The following year was made its first international tour, an ambitious and successful excursion that covered major cities in England, Holland, Germany, Hungary, and the former Yugoslavia. Though it was now a professional choir, the members maintained their volunteer, unsalaried status, which still holds true.

The group's first recordings appeared in 1992, and included a disc of sacred motets by Mendelssohn and Brahms, an all-Palestrina CD, and an album of motets, masses, and hymns by Rheinberger. A string of other recordings followed, sometimes four or five in a single year. Throughout the 1990s and into the new century, Gloriae Dei Cantores also continued to make regular concert tours at home and abroad, generally to critical and public acclaim.

In late 2006 the ensemble, still led by Patterson, made a highly praised concert tour with the Boston Pops of cities in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. Gloriae Dei Cantores' later recordings include the 2006 releases Burnished Bright, an album containing a mixture of Baroque and contemporary music, and Gregorian Requiem: Chants of the Requiem Mass. ~ Robert Cummings, Rovi

"The Eyes of All," music by Jean Berger. Wonderful performance. I loved singing this in college. Berger wrote a great deal of wonderful music--an earlier composer in the vein of Eric Whitacre or Morten Lauridsen.
