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

Innovative in its juxtaposition of styles, this trilingual classical, jazz, gospel setting of the powerful ancient text of the Te Deum brings together 3 contrasting vocal ensembles and 4 instrumentalists With its musical diversity, the composition combines a respect for our musical roots with a desire to incorporate more contemporary influences, engaging in a unique reconciliatory dialogue between different musical worlds.

Orchestrated for a Latin classical choir, English jazz-gospel vocal group, French vocal quartet and four musicians, the work last for an hour, divided into 12 movements.
