Wake Forest Professor of Music Dan Locklair’s “Gloria (Sacred Choral Works)” CD is now available worldwide. At Wake Forest, the newly-released CD is sold at the University’s Bookstore. It is also easily available online through various sources for recordings.
Available from England’s Convivium Records, the CD was recorded in the U.K. and features performances by Sospiri, Winchester College Chapel Choir and The Portsmouth Grammar School Chamber Choir, with conductors Christopher Watson and Malcolm Archer.
“This CD brings together pieces composed with texts that come from across the liturgical year,” according to an official announcement for the recording.
Locklair, who is also composer-in-residence at Wake Forest, has composed music that is widely performed throughout the U.S. and around the world. His catalog includes symphonic works, a ballet, an opera, chamber, instrumental, vocal and choral compositions.
Other recent choral CDs include “Requiem,” recorded by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Winston-Salem with members of the Winston-Salem Symphony, and “Tapestries, Choral Music of Dan Locklair.”
