Jean-Christophe Rosaz is a composer who loves and honors sacred texts. The Gloria for male voices a capella is intended to show all the subtleties of this beautiful text. Rhythms irresistibly stick to the text; polyphony illuminates and magnifies it, following the intentions efficiently, but with a kind of modesty. In the rehearsals and in concert, once the real difficulties of intonation overcome, we felt, more or less consciously, that we were invited to serve something, Someone ... The music, when it comes from an inner need of the composer has this power. This Gloria is a convincing illustration of it.
