    Good Chant and I listen to it all the time when I run.
  • If you like this stuff, actually get your pastor to use it during Mass!

    I was going to write an emotionally loaded rant about how everyone loves to buy gregorian chat CD's to "meditate", but when someone wants to add a little Latin to the Mass, they're denounced as unprogressive, but that's best left for a message board. Having said that, I refer you to the title of my review. As for the CD, can't complain really. It's well executed, but suffers from the same flaw as most Gregorian chant recordings: too much reverb. I studied Latin for three years, and while I can't hold a conversation or read Cicero, I can tell what someone is saying (or singing) more or less. However, it seems like all of these chant albums are recorded in a cathedral or something. I can't say that's a bad place to do it, but I just can't understand them, and I should be able to, given that everyone is singing the same thing (it's monophonic). It's a great album nonetheless, and, like a lot of these sacred music CDs, you can't beat the price for the amount of music you're getting! In conclusion, as mentioned in the title, if you actually find Gregorian chant spiritually nourishing, ask your pastor or music director to get it in during Mass, and show him what Vatican II REALLY said about Latin and Gregorian chant!

    I really enjoy this album as a soothing, drifting-off-to-sleep, reducing anxiety tool. It is SO simple. The voices echo and put you thousands and thousands of years back in time to a more prolific age of beauty.

    Absolutely magnificent. I was the the seminary for a while in the early 60s and my fondest memories are of being in the choir and nothing was as soul stirring as singing Gregorian chant. Great work, Monks!!

    I'm not Catholic. I don't medatate. (Not to be hatin' on the Catrholics to medatators out there.) But I do love this stuff. It's really calming and it helps when I'm working on homework (as crazy as that may sound.) And yes, I actually hum to it.
  • Beautiful. Incredible.
