About

Celebrate the sacred sounds of America with Kaleidoscope. This is the music that has lofted through church rafters across the United States since its founding, and continues to bring comfort and strength to its faithful people today. Features a new arrangement of Amazing Grace; classics by some of America's great composers such as Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson, Leo Sowerby and Paul Manz; and beloved hymns from Appalachia and the South, arranged by Alice Parker and others. Also features the brass quintet Gabriel V in a new arrangement of the spiritual Let Us Break Bread Together.

"If you think you've been overdosed on Amazing grace, you need to re-open the subject until you've heard the enchanting new choir-and-solo strings arrangement that opens this program." – Fanfare Magazine

Founded in 1988, Glorić Dei Cantores from Orleans, MA, under the direction of Richard K. Pugsley, has touched the hearts of audiences in 23 countries in Europe, Russia, and North America, receiving extensive critical acclaim for its artistic elegance, performance authenticity, and compelling spirituality.

The choir's discography of over 50 recording showcases their extensive repertoire, encompassing both masterworks and rarely performed musical treasures from Gregorian chant to the 21st century.
