Gloriæ Dei Cantores
Elizabeth Patterson

Just in time for their Fall 2012 U.S. Concert Tour, Gloriæ Dei Cantores releases Sacred Songs of France. The first disc in this three-volume French choral pilgrimage takes listeners from the earliest days of organum in the Middle Ages, through to the delights of seventeenth century polyphony. Sample the musical genius and spiritual art of celebrated composers such as Josquin des Prez, and their lesser known compatriots, like Dulot, Goudimel, and Mouton. Scholars will appreciate this disc for the generous survey it provides; choral fans will love the grace, beauty, and clarity of this early music.
