Celebrating the centenary of Aaron Copland's birth, Gloriæ Dei Cantores presents a broad spectrum of choral music by Aaron Copland and Virgil Thomson. These two musical giants exemplified the ideals of American culture and established a truly American style for music. The centerpiece for this recording is the first American recording in many years of Copland's choral masterpiece In the Beginning, featuring American mezzo-soprano Luretta Bybee. Also included are Thomson's beloved Four Southern Hymns and some of his fascinating early works written during his sojourn in Paris, and a selection of vibrant choral arrangements of Copland's Old American Songs.“Best of all are the Hymns from the Old South, sung with care, elegant but never lost their bright simplicity. Green Fields may be the loveliest hymn I’ve ever heard.” —American Record Guide
