Music at its finest: Gloriae Dei Cantores

posted by Scot McKnight

Sunday Kris and I attended the Gloriae Dei Cantores [Unto Ages of Ages: Sacred Choral Music of Sviridov, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovskyconcert at St. Andrews Greek Orthodox Church in Evanston. (Touring schedule.)  
A capella. I told Kris the choir had to be held back or they could have blown the windows out of the church; gloriously rich music, and I’m not a specialist by any means.
Gloriae Dei Cantores is the choral group from the Community of Jesus, which is also the group out of which Paraclete Press grew and who published my books on Jesus Creed (and others).
Who has heard Gloriae Dei Cantores?
By the way, you can listen to samples on the website through the links above.

I had never heard of them before but after sampling from their website I am going to order a recording and look for their next tour to Chicago. Glorious indeed! I say this as a bit of a “specialist” (B.A. in Music w/emphasis in Choral Conducting and Voice).
Thanks for the tip, Scot.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
