The Monastic Choir of St. Peter’s Abbey, Solesmes, has long been acclaimed as “setting the standard for Gregorian performance” (American Record Guide). This abbey in France was responsible for the re-birth and preservation of Gregorian chant, and the recordings by these monks convey the essence of this sacred music. The Solesmes collection of 18 recordings includes special seasonal recordings for Easter, Christmas, and other Feasts, as well as the “every day” and popular chants that many people are familiar with.
Please note the “He Was Placed in the Tomb – The Great Office of Holy Saturday” is no longer available and has been removed from this set.
