By Ivars Taurins, Choir Director
For the past 37 years, I have had the great privilege and pleasure to explore and share my passion for choral music with the remarkable group of singers known as the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir. In 2006, we opened our 25th anniversary season with a gala concert of music that epitomizes the choir and its characteristic sound and spirit, and we were delighted that CBC Records documented this special celebration by releasing a CD entitled Gloria in excelsis Deo.
The Bach and Vivaldi settings of the Gloria, together with Mondonville’s dramatic motet Dominus regnavit, continue to be favourites of Tafelmusik and our audiences, and I am delighted that this recording is once again available on our own label, Tafelmusik Media.
Gloria is now available for purchase at Tafelmusik concerts and on our online shop.
