Monks of Norcia Chant CD

The Sacred Art Series is an enthusiastic supporter of Gregorian Chant. As Vatican II's Sacrosanctum Concilium explained, this is the music that should be given the first place at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is also the music of the Liturgy of the Hours. Gregorian Chant's rhythms and melodies are timeless and help encourage meditative, reflective, and contemplative prayer.

So we are delighted to share that one of our favorite communities of monks, the Benedictine Monks of Norcia, are releasing a CD of Gregorian Chant through DeMontfort Music. You can pre-order the album here. And not only will you get an excellent CD of chant, part of the proceeds will benefit this great community of monks.
