The Gregorian chant on Chant Compendium 1 (Marian hymns, Benediction hymns, etc) was sung with the right intention, and you can perceive it when you listen. This live chant CD is like a genuine window on the praise offered to God via the Liturgy in ages past. This chant was recorded during actual liturgical functions. There is professional organ accompaniment in every piece, and the chant itself is excellent. Each CD is filled to capacity (over 79 minutes) with centuries-old Gregorian chant sung in the traditional Solesmes style. Includes part of the Divine Office (Wednesday Compline, several Vespers hymns), chant hymns in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and traditional chant used during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Also contains the sung Litany of St. Joseph.
