One of the most eloquent forms of sacred music is Anglican Psalmody which came into its own in the nineteenth century. Since then, it has become one of the most beloved sources of meditation in English parish churches and cathedrals as well as here in America. Gloriae Dei Cantores has rereleased a three album set of a selection of psalms that range in emotion from personal sorrow to grateful elation. These are performed in the superb acoustic of Gloriae Dei Cantores’ home, the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, MA. In their early years, Gloriae Dei Cantores trained under Dr. George Guest, for many years the music director of the choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge, England. As a gift to the choir, Dr. Guest gave a copy of his own psalter, with his own interpretations and this forms the basis of these albums. Also heard is the EM Skinner organ of the church, with its multifaceted and poetic colors beautifully supporting the chant. This set is a marvelous opportunity for prayer and meditation. Along with the sound of the psalms, there are written meditations which guide the listener through the many emotions of the psalms.
