Description

The Monks of Glenstal Abbey

“Gregorian Chant”

Gregorian Chant is an integral part of the Benedictine monastic experience, forming the core of the Church?s daily offices as they are chanted in choir: From morning (Matins and Lauds) through Mid-day Mass to evening (Vespers and Compline).

With passionate intensity and yet sober restraint, it channels religious emotion and gives it musical expression.Organ improvisation, as it is heard in this recording, is often used in the liturgy at Glenstal, capturing the mood of the liturgical action through spontaneous embellishment of the Gregorian melodies.
