Unfold, Ye Portals, from The Redemption

Charles Gounod composed his three-part oratorio The Redemption in 1882. The oratorio was an immediate hit, and a favorite work at British choral festivals of the 19th century, with their massed choirs and large orchestras. In this performance, the Gabriel Trumpet Ensemble provides additional drama to the chorus’s thrilling final fanfares.
