Gloria in Excelsis Deo - the song of the angels announcing Christ's birth - given here in a powerful version, simple and beautiful, for choir and saxophone by Norwegian composer Frøy Aagre. At times deeply meditative, at times sparkling with energy, this is a Gloria with roots in both the classical and jazz traditions. Frøy Aagre and the choir Schola Cantorum with their conductor Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl are all artists who make a point of trying to communicate directly with an audience. In this audio production from 2L, the listener seems to be among the players. This makes for a very special listening experience - you are captivated by the music's vitality and calm in Uranienborg Church, and by Frøy Aagre's expressive saxophone that provides the linear storytelling impetus to the music.

Gloria in excelsis Deo, ordene som skal ha blitt sunget av englene under Kristi fødsel. Her i en vakker, enkel og mektig versjon for kor og saksofon av Frøy Aagre, et Gloria som spenner fra det meditative til det kraftfulle i et tidløst spenn mellom klassisk musikk og jazz. Både Frøy Aagre og Schola Cantorum med sin dirigent Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl er kjent for sin særegne evne til å kommunisere fra scenen med sitt engasjement og for sin fortellerevne. I denne lydproduksjonen fra 2L kommer musikken lytteren i møte som om man selv var til stede midt i ensemblet i Uranienborg kirke. En særegen lytteropplevelse med vitalitet og ro, båret av Frøy Aagres fortellende saksofonstemme.
