The Ottawa Classical Choir and our sister choirs are proud to present “GLORIA” this coming December. Two hundred voices will perform Gloria by Karl Jenkins along with Gloria by Francis Poulenc.
Completed in 2010, and premiered the same year in the UK, Karl Jenkins’s Gloria has as its base the text of the Gloria section of the Latin mass and extends it with other texts, Psalm 150, Psalm 144 and the First Book of Chronicles.
Francis Poulenc’s Gloria takes the listener on a kaleidoscopic journey, constantly changing from dense to light. Composed in 1959, it enjoyed immediate acclaim and has remained a favourite with performers and audiences ever since its 1961 premiere in Boston.
