Celebrate Easter with Gregorian Chant

This recording of Gregorian Chant from the Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola celebrates the Feast of the Resurrection, which is 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.

Product Reviews for Chants of Easter

They sing in an admirably flexible manner with beautiful diction.
The singing offers excellent chant interpretation…a valuable addition to a chant library.
Fanfare Magazine
…a real bonanza. The Easter set offers a different liturgical sequence for every day of the traditional “Easter Octave” (Easter Sunday and the week following, including the next Sunday). This so called “week of Sundays” is the most important of the Catholic liturgical year, and its associated chants are among the most exalted and moving you’ll hear...Not even the most seasoned monastic group delivers it better than the Glorić Dei Cantores Schola, a group that specializes in Gregorian chant. They sing in daily services and appear often in concert with (and as part of) the Glorić Dei Cantores. Like them, the Schola singers are renowned for their smooth sound, rhythmic flexibility, and intense sacred sentiment.
American Record Guide
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…The result is elegantly overpowering. Marvelous!
In Tune Magazine
The singers’ “experience and expertise come from daily chanting of the Benedictine Monastic Offices.” This is then, 73 minutes of unaccompanied “Gregorian” chant expertly performed and flawlessly recorded, an hour of pleasant instruction and instructive pleasure. The booklet contains complete Latin texts with translations and valuable commentary.
The American Organist
…special focus on phrase coloring and word painting.
