Synopsis

Album Description
The selections offered on this record, with the exception of the Genealogy According to Saint Matthew, belong to the Antiphonal of the Friars Preachers. We might call attention to those pertaining to the office of compline, because they, more than any others, nourished the piety of the brethren ... This is the case with the Lenten compline, in the celebrated responsorial Media vita, whose very poignant melody moved Thomas Aquinas to tears. - Fr. Pierre Raffin, o.p., Bishop of Metz
 

CD Reviews

Chant performed masterfully
Laura R. | South Pasadena, CA | 07/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chant done badly is an probably one of my least favorite things as a choral singer. This is chant done well by those who truly believe that "Qui bene cantat, bis orat" or "He who sings well prays twice" A must buy for those who love to listen to chant. Even for those who don't, this record is exceedingly calming; featuring the serenely beatiful voices of the Choir of the Dominican Friars of the Province of France."
