I began composing this piece many years ago in France. Now it brings me great joy to finally see it come to life and to be able to present it to the world. This CD release by Navona Records will be distributed through Naxos Records and will also include a piece for 32 unaccompanied voices on an original text entitled "Tous les matins du monde" that was completed in May of this year. The Te Deum is being performed by the Moravian Philharmonic, the 3rd largest orchestra in the Czech Republic, conducted by Petr Vronsky who has guest conducted for some of the most prestigious orchestras in the world including the Berlin Symphony, the Munich Radio Orchestra and the St. Petersburg and Czech Philharmonics. 

I have put all of my heart, mind and resources into this dream and now I need your help and support to complete the final part of the journey and to help me fund the post-production of this project which includes editing, mixing, mastering, printing and distribution of the CD. 

The projected CD release date is March of 2015, and will include a DVD with a full documentary on the recording sessions and the making of this ambitious project. 

Remember, if the goal number is not reached, the project receives none of the donated funds!

Thank you everyone and anyone who can help me achieve this! 

Every little bit helps!!!
