Soli Deo Gloria is dedicated to enhancing, promoting and preserving the classical sacred music repertoire in the Biblical tradition. An important part of SDG's mission is commissioning new work. Check out Executive Director Chandler Branch's blog for news about this week's premier in Paris of a new musical work for choir, orchestra and soloists by composer Peter Bannister. The title of the work, Et iterum venturus est, comes from the Nicene Creed and translates “And he shall come again.” Et iterum venturus est is inspired by Bible prophesy in both the Old and New Testaments and is epic in its reach into the past and embrace of the future.
I'd also like to call to your attention the treasure trove of music and video interviews with composers commissioned by Soli Deo Gloria in Soli Deo Gloria's Listening Room. Because I love to know what makes artists tick, I am really enjoying the videos. It's well worth your time to check it out.
