“Opening with Timothy Corlis’ ‘Gloria’…the choristers of the Elora Festival Singers invite listeners on a beguiling journey into the mystic.”
Chris Morgan, Scene Magazine, May 2012
“Gloria Patri by Timothy Corlis that is equal parts magical incantation and celebration in music.”
John Terauds, Music Toronto, May 2012
“The CD opens with a setting of the Gloria by Timothy Corlis. The choir’s opening fortissimo chord is impressively projected, but the music quickly winds down to a more tentative, gentler mood. Soon a piano enters with driving ostinato figures that inject greater energy and movement into the vocal writing.”
