Te Deum classical-jazz-gospel: beyond musical frontiers
‘A diversity that explodes in every domain… musical, devotional, mood, time: a reconciliation of styles, traditions, history and modernity.’ Jean-Luc Gadreau
An innovative setting of this beautiful ancient prayer that moves us by its force and its humanity, the originality of this Te Deum lies in its diversity of styles managed with artistic coherence. Grounded in the historic tradition of sacred music, the work combines classical jazz and gospel styles in reconcliatory work.
Orchestrated for three vocal ensembles (Latin classical choir, English jazz-gospel vocal ensemble, French vocal quartet) and four musicians, the work last for an hour, divided into 12 movements.
