There's a reason the Church still sings sacred Latin hymns after hundreds of years, and there's a reason interest in Gregorian chant continues to grow. Somehow, it still expresses the awe and reverence we feel before the Creator of heaven and earth. Somehow, these simple, prayerful tones and words still capture the mystery of the soul's journey back home.

Exquisitely sung by the world-renowned Cantores in Ecclesia and expertly directed by Dean Applegate, O Lux Beatissima and Inclina Domine are two exceptional collections of Gregorian chant that will allow your community to experience the beauty of this sung prayer.

Among the many chant recordings released in recent years, O Lux Beatissima stands out for the exceptional quality of the singing and the music selected, featuring all the best-known traditional Gregorian hymns, including "Ave Maria," "Salve Regina" and "Ubi Caritas.” Cantores in Ecclesia sings the hymns entirely in Latin, most of them a cappella, although some feature simple organ accompaniment.

A first-rate recording by a first-rate, professional choir, O Lux Beatissima provides an excellent musical setting for reflection, meditation, retreats and any time we feel the need for the peace and devotion of these timeless chanted prayers.

Inclina Domine provides a wonderful example of how Gregorian chant can be integrated into everyday parish life throughout the year. It will become an indispensable resource for liturgical leaders who need basic resources, or for anyone looking to learn more about this method of singing the liturgy.

The fully sung Mass is one of the most festive and authentic ways to celebrate the Eucharist. This collection includes every part of the sung Mass, not just choir music, allowing the assembly to sing the Mass, rather than simply singing at Mass. The simple, elegant beauty of the chant's pure melody, sung in unison without harmony or embellishment, allows everyone to participate.

Don't miss these impressive collections of Gregorian chants. No library of Gregorian music can be complete without these basic and beautiful melodies.
