Te Deum

Conductor André de Quadros has assembled six highly acclaimed choirs, the New Monash Orchestra, tenor soloist Dwayne Jones and organist Linda Kent to perform Berlioz' masterwork.

André de Quadros conducts Viva Voce, Monash Women's Choir, Victoria Chorale, Victorian Boys' Choir, Voice Box, Wesley Adult Choir and the New Monash Orchestra. Featuring tenor soloist Dwayne Jones and organist Linda Kent.

The 'Te Deum', written in 1849, contains some of Berlioz' finest writing, it is a piece of mammoth proportions in terms of forces employed, breadth of style and immensity of musical form.

It features the beautifully melodic 'Tibi omnes', the dramatic and militaristic 'Praeludium', the intricately contrapuntal 'Dignare 'and the 'Judex crederis', which Berlioz himself considered along with the 'Symphonie funebre et triomphale' to be one of his most "architectural and grandiose creations".

Conductor André de Quadros has assembled six highly acclaimed choirs, the New Monash Orchestra, tenor soloist Dwayne Jones and organist Linda Kent to perform Berlioz' masterwork.

Particular attention has been paid to the balance in this recording, which due to the immense nature of the piece and the forces employed can be problematic in other recordings.
