The Gloria Consort was formed in 1994 to explore the solo and small chamber ensemble literature of the European late Renaissance and Baroque eras. Cornettist and recorder soloist Orum Stringer, viola da gambist Amy Warren, and harpsichordist Ernest Meyer are the basic ensemble. For specific programs, distinguished artists are asked to join in to perform larger works for up to five players. This season, Odessa Balan, Baroque violin, and Steven Moise, recorder are guest artists.

The Gloria Consort has played an annual concert in the Lake Afton Concert Series sponsored by St. Andrew's Church, Yardley for ten years. They have also appeared in concerts in Philadelphia at the Trinity Center for Urban Life, in Princeton at Westminster Choir College (now part of Rider University), The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College), The 1753 Bachmann House in Easton, PA, and other venues in the Delaware Valley.

Friday, October 31, 2014, 8PM: De Profundis: In the Shadow of Death.  Funeral music by German baroque composer Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684)

“Life itself is but the shadow of death, and souls departed but the shadows of the living.” - Sir Thomas Browne

Trinity Church, Princeton 33 Mercer Street Princeton, NJ 08540

Johann Rosenmüller has come to the forefront of attention in recent years as a composer of remarkable musical depth and talent. His ability to create both intense vocal drama is equaled by his expressive string writing. In his larger monumental settings of psalms he combines the spatial sensitivity of Monteverdi with the virtuosic string ensemble music of the second half of the 17th century, foreshadowing the sacred music of Bach. His smaller cantatas are gems of text painting and expressive string writing. In the 21st century, audiences are finally beginning to discover the mid-baroque repertoire and the masterpieces of this exceptionally superb composer.
