"Here is the story of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, the presentation, and finally, the vexation of Mary and Joseph when they cannot locate the young boy in crowded Jerusalem. It begins with Aspiciens a longe, and ecce video Dei potentiam venientem, the powerful statement of the approach of God. It continues with antiphons and canticles from Isaiah foretelling the Annunciation (Ecce virgo concipiet) and Luke's powerful telling (Ne timeas Maria).
"In clear, flowing Gregorian chant, with a warmth of tone, but no loss of intonation, from women's and men's voices together, the story unfolds. The centerpiece is a marvelous Magnificat anima mea Dominum followed by Mirabile mysterium declaratur hodie- A wondrous mystery is revealed this day. The recording opens and closes with organ works, an Offertory based on Conditor alme siderum (Creator of the stars of night) by Guilmant, and the Finale of Widor's Symphonie Gothique, a variation on Puer natus. It is a beautiful telling of the Story."
