Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola presents The Chants of Angels. Using the ancient melodies and texts of the early church, each Gregorian chant depicts a new aspect or story of these heavenly guardians, guides and friends, from the most intimate plea to our own guardian angels, to the great announcement made to the Virgin Mary by the Archangel Gabriel. For those who are new to Gregorian chant and for seasoned scholars, The Chants of Angels allows listeners to simply close their eyes, and be surrounded by these songs of prayer and comfort — just as they are surrounded by angels.
"I've been writing about the angels for many years. When I listen to The Chants of Angels, I feel as if I'm that much closer to my heavenly subject matter. This music is glorious, and I mean that in the most technical theological sense. Thank you."Mike Aquilina, author, Angels of God: The Bible, the Church, and the Heavenly Hosts and A Year with the Angels
"Three of the finest chant CDs have been released by Gloriae Dei Cantores: The Chants of Angels, The Chants of Mary and The Chants of the Holy Spirit. Put a Gloriae Dei Cantores SACD on your surround sound stereo and be transported to a timeless place of eternal beauty." — Kansas City Star
"While I have always approved the schola's chant recordings, [this] disc attains a new height of excellence, the best chant singing of any American choir."
J.F. Weber Fanfare May/June 2013
"I am so happy that the Cantores have embraced audiophile surround sound as it adds a whole new dimension to their already generally superb recorded legacy." "The voices on this recording infiltrate the room, flooding it with an inescapable beauty that envelops the ears and transports the senses."
"...a living and vibrant faith, and one hears this in every syllable of the Cantores' singing."
" The full texts and translations, along with little blurbs to guide us along the journey, are tasteful in the extreme and colorfully done in a premium presentation effort."
Steven Ritter Audiophile Audition 11/2011
Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola is dedicated to the singing and study of Gregorian chant. Its expertise and experience come from daily chanting of the Liturgy of the Hours as well as the Ordinary and Proper of the Mass at the Church of the Transfiguration. The Schola also conducts chant workshops and performs in concert with Gloriae Dei Cantores. Years of study with the late Dr Mary Berry, CBE, founder of the Schola Gregoriana in Cambridge, England, and the monks of St. Peter's Abbey, Solesmes, France, also contributes to the Schola's passion for Gregorian chant as a vibrant and living form of sung prayer.
