The world has enjoyed the genius of Mozart through his symphonies, operas, chamber and piano music. Mozart: Rare Choral Works presents a look at a side of Mozart that is not so well known: his contribution to music for the Church. Included in this recording are two rarely heard major works of great beauty and invention: Davide Penitente K. 469 and the Litaniae de venerabili altaris Sacramento K. 243.
Mendelssohn and Brahms both brought their great melodic gifts and deeply felt expression to the motet form, showcased in Sacred Motets of Mendelssohn and Brahms. The clarity and meaning of the sacred texts was of primary importance to both composers, and their study of Palestrina and Bach strongly influenced the style of these superb works.
Gloriae Dei Cantores (Singers to the Glory of God) holds a passionate dedication to the faithful representation of spiritual and musical authenticity in the choral arts. Sharing its vision of inspiration and hope, the choir has touched the hearts of audiences in twenty-four countries in Europe and Asia, as well as extensive tours and concert series in the United States. The choir's catalog of more than fifty recordings showcases an expansive repertoire, encompassing both masterworks and rarely performed musical treasures from Gregorian chant to the twenty-first century. Richard K. Pugsley and Gloriae Dei Cantores have garnered high praise for bringing lesser- known, yet fully deserving composers and their works to light. The choir makes its home at the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, Massachusetts, where it sings worship services throughout the year.
