The voices are beautiful and calming. Really helps to sooth away the stresses of the day. The music has been carefully chosen and the solo sections and different tempo of the chants, combined with the two belling ringing sessions gives the CD variety and the listener a feeling of having been on a restful and refreshing journey. Personally, I find the female voices more interesting than the tape I have of male Gregorian chants. I do love this CD and it is one that has, and will be played often. I would recommend it to anyone.
