The disciples waiting in the Upper Room, the rush of wind, the tongues of fire, and the spreading of the Gospel are all depicted in these Gregorian chants from two masses for the Feast of Pentecost. Opening and closing with the traditional tolling of the Angelus bell, this SACD also features a reading of the Pentecost story from the book of Acts, and Guillaume Dufay's Veni Creator Spiritus. "Three of the finest chant CDs have been released by Gloriae Dei Cantores: The Chants of Angels, The Chants of Mary and The Chants of the Holy Spirit. Put a Gloriae Dei Cantores' SACD on your surround sound stereo and be transported to a timeless place of eternal beauty." — Kansas City Star
"It just so happens that three of the finest chant CDs have been released over the last year by Gloriae Dei Cantores: The Chants of Angels, The Chants of Mary, performed by the men of the ensemble, and The Chants of the Holy Spirit, performed by the women.... "
"...put a Gloriae Dei Cantores super audio compact disc on your surround sound stereo, light some frankincense and a few candles, and be transported to a timeless place of eternal beauty. "

"...a schola of seven members of the choir[Gloriae Dei Cantores] based on Cape Cod have sung another collection of Gregorian chants, preparing the interpretations among themselves without a director. I was always impressed by the chant recorded here... but this new approach worked out for the last three discs strikes me very favorably... I hope they give us more, especially if the thematic program or the liturgical event is worked out as well as these are. Nicely done. "

"The seven ladies that make up the Gloriae Dei Cantores Women's Schola have given us a real gift for Pentecost...
"The renditions of this music have rarely been as perfectly presented as what the Schola accomplishes here. . . . its primary vision [is] a living and loving manifestation of these ancient chants as something that breathes life into a contemporary cultural setting. Technically they are immaculate, and one can hear the evident love and devotion in every breath taken in this astoundingly beautiful music."
"...a spectacular and well thought-out color booklet...and most importantly, some of the most helpful and descriptive verbiage I have ever read about Gregorian chant."
"This is a highly recommended disc."

Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola is dedicated to the singing and study of Gregorian chant. Its expertise and experience come from daily chanting of the Liturgy of the Hours as well as the Ordinary and Proper of the Mass at the Church of the Transfiguration. The Schola also conducts chant workshops and performs in concert with Gloriae Dei Cantores. Years of study with the late Dr Mary Berry, CBE, founder of the Schola Gregoriana in Cambridge, England, and the monks of St. Peter's Abbey, Solesmes, France, also contributes to the Schola's passion for Gregorian chant as a vibrant and living form of sung prayer.
