More 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.

Product Reviews for Gregorian Melodies II

The program of the two discs (Gregorian Melodies I and II) are simiari, offering alternate settings on each disc of the sprinkling of water, the Ordinary of the Mass (two cycles on the first disc, another on the second), Benediction hymns, and the most familiar pieces marking the liturgical year. The final antiphons of Our Lady are sung in the simple (more modern) tone, two on each disc. Sung so superbly as they are here, these two discs are exactly what are needed for those who long to hear the familiar chants again.
J. F. Weber, Fanfare
