This is a very good CD. The choir are excellent and Haley Westenra's solo is superb. It would have been spoiled by having an opera singer as Hayley just sings from the heart - brilliant!

What makes me buy a new release from Karl Jenkins? Maybe the hope that somehow it won't be more of the same. Well, this time it was partly more of the same and partly something different. Gloria. In many ways more of the same. This is the work I like the least. It is a patchwork of styles with strange texts between the movements. I understand what Jenkins wants to do, but I am not sure that he achieved his goal. The patchwork of styles is the most irritating thing about the Gloria. Part IV "The Song - I'll make music" sounds like a piece of music from a musical with the sickly forced voice to go with it. Ugh. Jenkins' music usually has many ad nauseam bits. It is also true of the Gloria. The 5th movement "The Exaltation - Domine Deus" has a whopping 86 bar Amen section broken by an instrumental intermezzo from bar 161 to bar 168. What makes it even worse is the molto rall for the last 6 bars. It just prolongs the agony. Movement 3 (Psalm 150) is the usual Jenkins attempt to be ethnic. Interesting. I've heard better and more coherent Gloria's.
Now to the Te Deum. This is the work that really appeals to me. It is compact and contains very little ad nauseam repetition. The first movement takes consists of 232 of the total of 477 bars. The third part, Aeterna Fac is rhythmically very interesting. Add to that the beefy harmonies and you have music to climb into and enjoy. The use of triplets heightens the contrast between the recurring quaver en semiquaver rhythm in the bass. The last part (Te Deum reprise) differs from the opening part in the use of semiquaver scales in the violins. They are certainly not misplaced. The last 20 bars consist of te te en te deum repeated and repeated. But just short enough not to be annoying. The Te Deum is a delightful piece which is quite moving.

It lacked some of Jenkins originality; there was too much choral music and the readings just seemed out of place.

I must admit, I don't like the Gloria or the Readings with the Gloria. However, the Te Deum is fantastic.

It is so good to be able to listen to what we are supposed to be learning and to hear it sung professionally is amazing.

I bought this CD for 'The Prayer: Laudamus te' which I had heard on Classic FM but I also enjoyed 'The Song' (Hayley Westenra) and all of the 'Te Deum'. Both 'Gloria' and the 'Te Deum' are set ancient hymns of praise from the Christian tradition the latter dating from the fourth century according to the sleeve notes. Certainly some heavenly music on offer here.
