Gloria, for Choir and Orchestra
Glenn Meade - Composer
Gloria, for Choir and Orchestra by Glenn Meade, gives a cutting-edge expression to a familiar text. A work of exquisite beauty and power, this 50-minute setting of the second portion of the Great Mass interprets the words with totally new melodies and rhythms. Beginning with a hush, it builds through each section culminating in the glorious "Amen." The superb vocalists, accompanied by an array of electronic instruments, perform a vibrant new musical realization of the sacred text.
