Soli Deo Gloria recently cooperated with the Jigdaljahu choir in recording a beautiful cd with music from composer Marco den Toom. These songs are all in Dutch, and are written and composed by Marco den Toom in cooperation with several Dutch writers.
The title of this cd is “Geloof, Hoop en Liefde” wich translates into “Faith, Hope and Love”.
You can order your cd here.
After our great “Thank You Canada” tour we did last May, we are already busy preparing our next tour abroad. This trip will be a weekend in England, from Sept. 17 until Sept. 19. We hope to sing there together with “Hollands Jongerenkoor 6”. After we have visited Canterbury and London, we will travel to Brugge (Belgium) for our final performance.
And now the good news: you can join us! We offer you a complete trip by bus and ferry. And of course we will stay in a luxury hotel. For more info please visit Dalstra reizen.
During a galadiner last Friday, the annual “Zilveren Duif” (Silver Dove) was awarded. A Dutch award intended for christian artists, divided in several categories. One of those categories is “Best Album Sacred Music”.
Soli Deo Gloria was happily surprised this year, when we were informed that our new CD “Heimwee” (Homesick) was nominated for the category “Best Album Sacred Music“. Soli Deo Gloria and four other artists were chosen out of all those albums that were released in 2013. And that is a great honour in itself.
On Friday the 8th of november our choir members Jan Bakker, Hein Kramer, Pieter Toon Bakker en Meindert Bakker, went to Nijkerk where the official ceremony took place. The tension built up to the moment the category “Best Album Sacred Music” was next. First all the nominees were mentioned, and after that… drumroll… “And the winner is: Soli Deo Gloria with their album “Heimwee” It was unbelievable.
