    The Gloria is Glorious!

    The brass & choral sound in the 1st & 3rd movement is absolutely wonderful on this recording....both joyful & exciting. Sandwiched in between is the 2nd movement, which I've always imagined listening to on a beach at night looking up at the stars - realizing how small you are and how infinite and mysterious God is. It portrays that feeling perfectly.

    Rutter is a genius, in larger works like the "Gloria" & in smaller works, like the anthems represented here. Enjoy!

    Absolutely intoxicating!

    One of the most beautiful works of sacred choral music ever written, Rutter's "Gloria" takes the listener on a journey to the heavens of musical praise. From the majestic "Allegro Vivace", to the intimate "Andante" and finally to the climactic "Vivace," the listener hears new aspects to the work every time it's played. Not only is the choral arranngement magnificent, and flawlessly executed, but the brass, organ and percussion provides the perfect complement, not just an accompaniment, to the vocals. This recording is the next best thing to hearing it live. Stick it in your iPod, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride!

    English Choral Music at its best

    The Gloria is beautifully conceived, combining the great tradition of English choral music embodied by Vaughn Williams, Wilcox, Britten and Delius, with some jazz brass and percussion . The performance by the Cambridge singers is flawless as usual. This disc is also very well recorded and produced.

    Simple, beautiful.

    John Rutter is probably the greatest contemporary composer of religious chorale music. From masses to simple prayers, his music resounds with clear and bright harmony.
