Soli Deo Gloria is pleased to announce the world premiere of Psalm 111 by James Lee. Written for mixed chorus and orchestra, the work is part of SDG’s ongoing Psalms Project and will be premiered by the Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra at the Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, on October 19, 2013.
Soli Deo Gloria’s Psalms Project, made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., is rapidly expanding. Launched as a three-year pilot project to create a collection of fifteen contemporary choral works by the world’s foremost composers, the Psalms Project catalog now includes seven works, with two additional world premieres taking place in May 2013.
The March 27, 2013, Chicago Bach Project presentation of Bach's Mass in B Minor was a night to remember! The Chicago Tribune hailed Maestro John Nelson for his "fervent account" of the Mass in this third installment of Soli Deo Gloria's rotating cycle of Bach sacred choral masterworks, coinciding with the Easter celebration.
