"From the foreword: ''the chants of the liturgia dufunctorum (Liturgy of the dead) originate from two celebrations: the Order of Burial and All Souls' Day on 2nd November. Nothing is known about these chants before the eight and ninth cnturies, because the manuscripts of that period only recorded the verbal texts of the readings and prayers. Yet, starting from the 10th century, music manuscripts reveal the existence of a repertoire that will consist of more than a hundred chants.''
This was some information. But now I must say that this cd is brilliant, excellent, of immense emotional power! It is one of the best gregorian chant recordings I've ever heard. So clean, pure almost ''otherworldly''. Featured inside are the complete lyrics in latin.
Technically the chants are sung by a cantor (Alessio Randon) and a female choir (Aurora Surgit).
But enough talking, just listen to the Requiem Aeternam and Epistula samples to be convinced of its beauty/greatness/ability to reach and quake your heart...."
