About

The monks of Solesmes have selected a sampling of the "best" Gregorian chants, including Antiphons for Lauds of Martyrs at Eastertide, Kyrie IX and Gloria IX in The Gregorian Sampler, while in the Gregorian Anthology, we hear Chants from the principal seasons of the entire liturgical year.

This anthology of Gregorian chants is of great interest as the contents are in liturgical order, following the principal seasons (Christmas, Holy Week, Easter, and Marian Feasts) representing the entire liturgical year. The beautiful Gregorian chant illumunates the liturgical texts, inviting the listener to contemplate the life of Christ and the foundation of the church. This overview will provide more enjoyment for the experienced listener while making a splendid introduction to the beauty of Gregorian chant for the novice. Throughout the anthology the unique interpretive insights that are the hallmark of Solesmes' recordings are carefully preserved.

“This anthology has gathered together some of the greatest gems of the Gregorian repertory and ordered them according to their liturgical order in the principle seasons and themes of the church year. They are sung with great vitality and a deep feeling for the religious meaning of the texts. Through their voices these chants become a truly inspired proclamation of Christian faith.” – Fr. Columba Kelly, OSB, St. Meinrad Archabbey

“Singing beautifully arched musical lines, the monks' choir of the Abbey of Saint Peter of Solesmes presents a recording of chants with excellent intonation and splendid pacing. A sound that felicitously blends lightness and vigor makes this recording of chants the very best of all the ones I have heard. The performance of well sung familiar chants (such as Pange ligua and Victimae paschali) with very rarely heard ones (such as the trope Ecce nomen Domini and the sequence Salve dies) is an added bonus.” – Johannes Somary, Founder of Amor Artis
