About

The source for this recording is the Graz 807 codex, a gradual from the early twelfth century, which several scholars believe to have been compiled in Klosterneuburg in the monastery of the Augustinian canons. Due to its various peculiarities it has often been the subject of scholarly research in the fields of codicology, liturgical history, music history, and art history, and in 1981 a facsimile edition of the codex was published as volume 19 of Paléographie musicale...

In order to provide more variety for the listener, the groups of chant for Sundays have been interspersed with four-part arrangements of the communio from the Heinrich Isaac’s large collection Choralis Constantinus, in which the Gregorian chant features as a cantus firmus.
