Gloria 'Prelude 2'
composer
2000

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Petr Eben’s devout catholicism has brought him, especially through his music, into contact with many figures, great and small, of the Catholic Church, particularly in the Czech Republic and Germany. This has resulted in many requests and commissions to mark special anniversaries of both churches and church leaders. The Gloria (Prelude 2) is one such work, written in 2000 to mark the sixty-fifth birthday of the Bishop of Mainz, Cardinal Karl Lehmann. Based on Gregorian chant, it was first performed at the cathedral in Mainz by the organist there on 16 October 2001.
