Format: Audio CD
At first I was unsure if Gregorian Chant was my thing. I am used to other music (Lee Ryan is my star). When I listened to the CD the sounds seemed at first strange, but unbelievably peaceful and ... gooseflesh! I find this music very deep and moving. What I did find a bit disruptive were the church bells that we hear twice on the CD. Otherwise the music is FANTASTIC, and I can only recommend it. The CD booklet is there to help understand what is being sung, as everything is in latin. The CD is also priceworthy - afterall it does have 29 tracks. The sound quality is excellent and transports you to another dimension.

In a world that appears to be full of distraction and noise this cd is a much welcome antidote! Within moments of playing my copy for the first time, I felt at peace and better able to focus on the things that really mattered to me. You don't need to be religious to appreciate this type of music - it just seems to invigorate one's very being, reaching the parts that other sounds fail to reach!!

This is the most relaxing music I have ever listened to. It is beautiful. All the stresses of the world disappear as soon as I start playing the cd. The timeless wonder of this music puts everything into perspective. I cant recommend it highly enough.

Beautiful haunting music - I was very pleased when this CD landed unexpectedly this morning (I was expecting to wait much longer as I had grouped items), Amazon must have known I was in need of repose so sent this ahead of the other items (10/10 for Amazon and their psychic ability!)
I now feel more chilled and ready to take on my mobile company's customer services again!! and I expect this CD will be playing most of the day.

My wife (for whom I bought it) says that this CD is very restful and soothing and I have to say that I quite like to hear the singing in the background whilst I slave away at the computer!

I have to say, I didn't buy this for myself (see my reviews. it's not my cup of tea!), I purchased it as a gift for my elderly mother.
She really likes it, and the 5 stars are from her! She occasionally has difficulty sleeping and she's finding this music every bit as relaxing & de-stressing as is being claimed. She plays it at night and it's helping to sedate her.(no mean feat!!)
Trust me, old folks can be hard to please, so the monks must be doing something right!
What I've heard of it, it sounds relaxing & spiritual - I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to it - but then again, I didn't at all mind having to listen to it whilst cleaning my mum's kitchen windows for her.

Somehow, I don't think she'll be wanting to borrow my incoming Judas Priest CD....

Format: Audio CD
CONTEMPLATION IN A CLOISTER !

That the calm and the serenity conveyed by these chants, which have survived for approximately 1,500 years, is still relevant today, can be readily appreciated by the fact this recording stayed at the top of the best seller list an inordinately long period of time upon its release.

In addition, if one has a sense of history, listening to this music is like peering through a window into the distance past. The intervening hundreds of years seem to melt away.

Listening to this fascinating CD, one is transported several hundred years back in time to the peace and serenity of a medieval cloister. Gregorian chant has a mystical quality all its own; there is no instrumental to complicate the pure tonal quality of voices united in praise of God. The result, as recorded by the monks, is incredibly relaxing and de-stressing. I could listen to this CD for hours on end without ever tiring of it.

This music is haunting. Just to think, before any popular or classical music was ever dreamt of, there was this. The human voice, chanting in praise to God. Very deep. No matter what your taste in music, buy this. The cd is perfect for those reflective times in your life. Times when you need to meditate and relax. Just let the sound encompass you. You will not be disappointed.

Gregorian Chant is not 'sung' but rather prayed. The spirit of Gregorian Chant has been captured and presented here by the Monks.

These good men are true fathers of the chant yet are childlike in their prayers to the Heavenly Father. The monastic life of prayer and submission to the Divine is fully captured in every detail.
