Product Description

By the Monastic Choir of St. Peter's Abbey, Solesmes, France.

Originating from the 10th to the 17th centuries, the Gregorian chants range from Tantum Ergo and Adoro Te, to hymns from the service of Compline. 

Sung with grace and style, the chants on this disc are ideal for those who are familiar with the chant liturgy, as a collection of familiar melodies, as well as for those wanting to become familiar with Gregorian chant.


"These chants are sung with the warm, pleasant tone so typical of the Solesmes monks with clear Latin diction and with a relaxed, conversational rhythm. With the aid of the Liber Cantualis and this recording it would be an ideal way to teach a choir to chant." 
 — Dr. Robert Fowells, Los Angeles Gregorian Schola (founder) California State University

"The program of the two discs (Gregorian Melodies I and II) are similar, offering alternate settings on each disc of the sprinkling of water, the Ordinary of the Mass (two cycles on the first disc, another on the second), Benediction hymns, and the most familiar pieces marking the liturgical year. The final antiphons of Our Lady are sung in the simple (more modern) tone, two on each disc. Sung so superbly as they are here, these two discs are exactly what are needed for those who long to hear the familiar chants again."  
— Fanfare
