Soli Deo Gloria Announces a Double DVD Release

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 . . . Circle the date.  It's time to celebrate. A musical and visual feast is arriving! It's the U.S. release date for two new sacred masterwork DVDs in The Soli Deo Gloria Collection: Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Haydn's The Creation (Die Schöpfung), conducted by John Nelson and produced by Soli Deo Gloria and Idéale Audience.


Sven-David Sandström Commission on the Horizon

"God Be Merciful"
by Sven-David Sandström

It is with great pleasure that Soli Deo Gloria announces its next world premiere, a commission, in collaboration with the Sacred Music Department of Westminster Choir College, of God Be Merciful  by Sven-David Sandström for a cappella choir. As one of Sweden’s most performed living composers, Sandström has an impressive catalog of works that includes some 300 compositions, ranging from operas and oratorios to intimate choral and chamber music.  In recent years, he has been focusing especially on sacred choral music, which makes it is especially fitting that his new work, a six-minute a cappella choral piece based on Psalm 67, is the third release in Soli Deo Gloria’s Psalms Project.


Soli Deo Gloria in Transition

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The entire SDG staff and board offer a standing ovation for Chandler Branch, our stalwart President and CEO who brought this organization full throttle into the 21st century. As you might imagine, we’re enormously sad to lose Chandler to another arts organization, but we’re also excited with him about his new work as Executive Director of Art Saint Louis. Bravo! (See Chandler’s letter of resignation.)


CEO Chandler Branch Announces His Resignation

"Eleven years ago I joined the staff of Soli Deo Gloria and began the most enriching and formative professional experience I have ever had. Now, after many treasured adventures in the company of great friends and great music, the time has come to begin a new chapter in my life and to allow the same to take place in the life of SDG.
