If you want some history and background then this is a perfectly good introduction to Gregorian Chant. Unfortunately I bought it expecting to the be more of a tutorial on the technique of singing chant, which it definitely isn't.

It's a good introduction to the development of chant and has a representative selection of examples of the chants used in the liturgy, with recordings of the Monks of Solesmes.

Unfortunately, the spoken text does let this product down somewhat. Sarah Moule is reading from a script, but it doesn't need to be made quite so obvious - she's painfully slow in her rendition. It would have been much nicer to have someone talking with a little more warmth and a slightly faster pace, rather than the over careful enunciation that's served-up. If that doesn't put you off then this could be a good purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Teaching tool 22 May 2010
By Rev. Ben Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I was in Music School at Stetson University, the recordings of choice of Gregorian chant were by the monks at Solesmes. I now teach a course called Music of the World's Religions and when I came across this cd on Amazon, I jumped at the chance. Not only is it an outstanding performance of chant by some of the very best, but on top of that you get a lecture about history and performance practice. What more could a music history prof ask for? This cd is well recorded, easy to understand and the tracks are arranged so that one may pick a subject to demonstrate. Add to that a very reasonable price and there you have it-an almost perfect cd for the occasion!
