One cannot listen to "Gloria" and come away unmoved. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS CD!
"Gloria" also has a number of Rutter's single choral compositions, all of which are gorgeous. His melodies and arrangements are incredibly melancholy and transports your soul to a higher spiritual plane. Songs like "The Lord is My Shepherd" and "God Be In My Head" truly show Rutter's genius in arranging beautiful melodies around a meaningful text. As awesome as all these songs are, and some rank up there with Rutter's best, many of his best choral compositions are not even on this CD. But as for a major score, Gloria IS the best!

I bought this because our local chorale was singing the Gloria. The problem is that the brass is not balanced against the vocal parts; the brass completely overwhelms the voice. Read morePublished on April 24, 2013 by Mary Essary
