Popular Gregorian chants from the Monks of Solesmes
Following the success of Gregorian Melodies, the monks of Solesmes have released Gregorian Melodies II. This volume contains more of the most popular chants including the Te Deum, Stabat Mater, and Ave Maria. There are also chants for the Liturgical Year from Advent to Pentecost, chants devoted to Our Lady and the Blessed Sacrament, and the Mass of the Angels. All of the Gregorian chants on the recording have a corresponding page number next to the listing that refers to the Liber Cantualis.
This is an ideal CD with which to become acquainted with Gregorian chant. The sensitive performances by Dom Richard Gagne and the monks of Solesmes enhance the value of this series.
