'The Prayer: Laudamus Te' is taken from Jenkins' vibrant 'Gloria', a large-scale festival piece commissioned by the Really Big Chorus for performance at London's Royal Albert Hall. Cast in five movements, 'Gloria' sets the traditional Latin text 'Gloria in excelsis Deo' and incorporates a setting of Psalm 150 in alternative Hebrew or Latin texts. Between the movements, readings from Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Islam are given, in English or any language of choice. 'Gloria' follows 'Te Deum', 'Stabat Mater' and 'Requiem', from the composer of 'Adiemus' and 'The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace'. For mixed choir and piano.
