This NEW Edition is released in this 50th year since Leo Sowerby’s passing on July 9, 1968. Leo Sowerby: American Master of Sacred Song celebrates “the Dean of American Church Music” and his contributions to the choral and organ repertory. Gloriae Dei Cantores has selected ten anthems to represent Sowerby as an inspired composer for worship as well as several sacred vocal solos and four of his finest works for organ. The CD set is crowned with a rare performance of Sowerby’s Festival Musick for brass and organ. Sowerby’s rich harmonies and exciting vocal writing capture the listener in such texts as Great is the Lord, O God, the Protector of All, Come, Holy Ghost and Turn Thou to Thy God. His organ music shows a rare ear for color and texture and his style, attractive and accessible, is timeless. As with many of Gloriae Dei Cantores’ recordings, this one contains much music not available elsewhere.
