Gregorian chant inspires us to recharge our spiritual batteries with its sense of tranquility and peace. Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola has re-released this treasury of Gregorian chants about Christ's Transfiguration (formerly "Shining Like the Sun"). Full of joy and hope, these prayers and meditations encourage us to lift up our eyes and bask in the heavenly light of Christ. Includes chants about the prophecies of the Transfiguration, chants that tell the story of Christ's Transfiguration, and chants that highlight the possibility and promise of our own transfiguration. Beautiful, chant-inspired organ works bookend the program.
"The singing of these chants by this professional ensemble is wonderful. The sound of the women's voices is particularly striking because of their light and brilliant timbre. "
Loewen American Record Guide November/December 2005
"The chants are sung by women and men in alternation with occasional octave-singing climaxes. The solo verses are expertly sung. The singing is characteristic of a group that sings chant as a daily service of worship, yet under the influence of Dr. Berry the interpretation leaves nothing lacking that a professional ensemble would bring to the task. This is an unusual presentation that will appeal to many chant enthusiasts."
J.F. Weber Fanfare November/December 2005
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.
