Under the umbrella of worship, brass instruments have a unique quality to proclaim God’s goodness—they can herald good news, be vibrant and declamatory, strong and resolute, or tender and beautiful. This vast range of sound has a unique possibility to create glimpses of the uncountable riches, colors, and hopes that are abundant in the love of God. For the Beauty of the Earth is our culmination of praise for Creation and our Creator.

Audiophile Audition

This is a gorgeous collection, in hi-res surround, of works expertly performed for brass, percussion and pipe organ. The Gabriel V ensemble usually performs and tours the world with the chorale group Gloria Dei Cantores. They also run an annual concert series in Orleans, MA. The Gabriel V Ensemble and organ were recorded in the historic Mechanics Hall of Worcester, MA, which since its restoration in 1977 has been internationally regarded as one of the world’s finest concert halls.

The standout here is the six-minute Toccata from Widor’s Fifth Symphony – probably the best arrangement of the work I have ever heard. There is also a lovely arrangement of Vaughan-Williams’ hymn, Randolph. Other composers include Anthony DeLorenzo, David Marlatt, Walter Pelz, and John Bacchus Dykes. This is a perfect type of music for hi-res surround, and for the use of the surrounds for more than the usual ambient sonics. A most enjoyable surround concert of brass, percussion and pipe organ.
