Gloriæ Dei Cantores (Choir)

Founded: Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA

The American choir Gloriæ Dei Cantores (= GDC) has toured 23 countries in Europe, Asia, and North America, sings in 18 languages, and has received extensive critical acclaim for its performance of sacred choral music of all styles from the 11th through the 20th centuries. The Boston Globe labeled Gloriæ Dei Cantores' concert performances as "Beautifully finished, but richly emotional."

Gloriæ Dei Cantores is also one of the few choirs to be praised for "expert renditions of Gregorian chant." (New York Times). Highlights of the choir's extended performance experience include: the 900th anniversary celebration of St. Mark's Basilica, Venice; Rockefeller Tree Lighting Ceremony, New York City; the soundtrack of Lorenzo's Oil; performances in the Great Hall of the Conservatory, Tchaikovsky Hall, and the Hall of Columns in Moscow; Kapella Hall in St. Petersburg; St. John Smith's Square in London; and many others. The choir, based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, consists of 40 men and women, aged 18-60, from a wide variety of occupations, denominations and musical backgrounds.
