Christmas: The Night Office: Vigils [CD]
Directed by Dom Jean Claire

Welcome Christ’s birth with the soothing sounds of Gregorian chant sung by the Benedictine monks of Solesmes, France.

Put this CD on, close your eyes and allow yourself to be transported to the ancient, candle-lit chapel of the Benedictine monks of Solesmes, France. On this cold, dark mid-winter’s night, the eve of Christmas, the monks have gathered to chant Midnight Mass.

As the opening tones of the first introit begin to resound, you can’t help but feel a sense of awe—for the beauty of the chant, for this centuries-long tradition, for the mystery of the Incarnation. You can’t help but enter more deeply into the peace and joy of this holy season.

Recorded in the perfect acoustics of the church at St. Peter’s Abbey, Christmas includes the introits, graduals, alleluias, offertories, Communion antiphons, responses, sequences, hymns and tropes from Midnight Mass and Mass of Christmas Day. Founded in 1010, St. Peter’s Abbey has established the world standard for Gregorian chant recordings, with many prestigious international awards to its credit.

The CD booklet includes the complete Latin texts of the chants, with English and Spanish translations as well as extensive commentaries in English and Spanish.

Celebrate Christmas with the monks of Solesmes!
Includes Introits, Graduals, Alleluias, Offertories, Communions, Responses, Sequences, Hymns, and Tropes from the Midnight Mass and the Mass of the Day.
