About

In celebration of Sir Karl Jenkins’s 75th birthday and released to coincide with his birthday concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Decca releases 10 catalogue titles on CD.

This set of reissues completes the catalogue now on Decca, which includes the complete Adiemus series.

Gloria is in five movements and takes as its main text the Latin version of the hymn of praise to God from the traditional Christian Mass.

The release is partnered with Te Deum, which is based on an early Christian Latin text praising God.

“Karl Jenkins is a rarity among contemporary composers, balancing popularity with innovation.” - The Independent

“In between movements, I have selected readings from various ancient religions, each expressing their own concept of the divine or a deity. The detachment of Buddhism, and the paradoxes of Taoism are both alternative ways of perceiving ultimate reality, and they therefore stand as a kind of counterpoint to the Abrahamic religions.” - Karl Jenkins

Originally released in 2012.
