A Year-End Video Gift for You

As one year closes and a new year begins, it’s a good time to take stock. What has 2010 brought? At SDG, we’ve had an incredible year that included four wonderful premieres of new sacred music (Pärt's In Spe, Bannister's Hermosura de Dios, Harnly'sThe Lost Son, Kellogg's O Greening Branch) and two amazing worldwide webcasts (Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Haydn's The Creation). We invite you to enjoy a few highlights from the year and share in the joy.


Merry Christmas!

The board and staff of Soli Deo Gloria wish you moments of peace and celebration as you contemplate the grace-filled gifts of the season. Take a moment to enjoy the glorious words and music of "For Unto Us a Child Is Born."

The premiere of SDG’s newest commission, The Lost Son by Neal Harnly, takes place on Friday, November 5, 2010, with the renowned Indianapolis Children’s Choir (ICC) under the direction of Henry Leck, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. This opening night of the ICC’s 25th anniversary season will be the first time that most of us will hear and feel the impact of the full work. But before a new SDG commission becomes a reality, it has already begun touching lives.
