Notre Dame Liturgical Choir : Sing Unto God!

Review: Sing Unto God! encompasses the Liturgical Choir's repertoire. From the intricate Baroque motets of Viadana and Victoria to the melodic twentieth century setting of Psalm 23 by Matthews, included are choral standards such as Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" and Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus." Other pieces, seasonally themed include a song for Epiphany "Heilig" by Mendelssohn and Victoria's plaintive setting of the Lenten "O Vos Omnes." The recording ends with Parry's "I Was Glad," one of the most famous cathedral anthems ever written.

Songlist: Exultate justi, Christus factus est, Ave Maria, O Vos Omnes , Jesu, Joy of Our Desiring , The Lord is My Shepherd , And the Glory of the Lord from Messiah , Ave verum corpus, There Shall a Star , Heilig , E'en So, Lord Jesus, My Shepherd Will Supply My Need , I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me
