God's Trombones / Gloriae Dei Cantores
"My long-standing love affair with James Weldon Johnson's classic God's Trombones was sparked anew by this splendid 78 minute cantata and the tonally sumptuous recording the Gloria Dei forces have made of it. ... it is a major triumph for the Paraclete operation to have secured his (Gordon Myers) participation in this venture."
—John L. Hooker, Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians
"Gloriae Dei Cantores again show their incredible versatility in moving easily from sections resembling Britten or Vaughan Williams to others resembling African-American spirituals."
—Mark Sedio, Cross Accent
The singing is top notch and the performances bloom with drama and gravity. Myers' voice is potent and exact and the choir inspired. This is a piece of music that deserves to be heard and preserved.
—C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
