Overview

The Gregorian chant has been a part of Catholicism since at least the ninth century, and continues to be embraced at Catholic monasteries in the 1990s. One such monastery is the Monasterio de Santo Domingo de Silos, located in northwestern Spain. It was at that monastery that this enriching collection of Gregorian chants was recorded by the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos. One needn't be Catholic to appreciate the richness of "Verbum Caro Factum Est," "Imroperium," "Veni Sancte Spiritus," "Spiritus Domani," and other time-honored chants heard on this CD (which was first released by EMI in 1994, and reissued as a gold-audiophile CD by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in 1998). All of these serene, tranquil chants are performed a cappella, and all of them are in Latin, the original language of Catholicism. Chant's digital sound quality is superb.
