Product Description

Honor the Feast of the Resurrection with this recording of Gregorian Chant from the Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola.

Rooted in the earliest centuries of Christian worship, this "celebration of celebrations" is a time for rebirth, and this recording reflects that sense of personal renewal and joy. 

The Chants of Easter includes the Propers of Easter Day and Gregorian chants for the octave of Easter — daily services that are part of the week-long celebration of the Easter miracle. These chants are conveyed with careful attention to subtleties in the ancient Gregorian notation, inviting listeners to share the experience of Christ's resurrection in all its richness.

"This disc contains what I believe are first recordings of the Gregorian Propers for Easter Day and the Octave for Easter. Spectacular stuff! Easter is, after all, the essential and most important of Christian feast days. Without Christ's resurrection, the whole belief would be meaningless. It stands to reason that one can expect some of the finest, most joyous chants set aside for Easter.
The free-flowing lyric lines are indeed other-worldly in their refined sense of suspended animation. The effect, especially when performed so well as here, tends to float the mind. The chants are so soothing, that one can not help but escape feelings of anxiety or anger. Their appeal is general. One need not be religious to be moved, for the chants are catholic as well as Catholic. Sonically, the recordingis super, and utterly free of gimmicks. The result is elegantly overpowering. Marvelous!"  — In Tune Magazine
