REQUIEM MASS - CATHOLIC FUNERAL MASS
by Gregorian Chant
We always knew we wanted to offer a Gregorian chant CD, but which one? We love the deep voices of monks but we also love the soothing melodic voices of nuns. We soon discovered that it’s impossible to find a quality CD featuring both. Then we heard about a very unique choir, The Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola, dedicated to the singing and study of Gregorian chant. While the Requiem Mass is essentially a Catholic Funeral Mass, the chants of the Requiem are some of the most beautiful of all Gregorian chants. Perhaps that is because a mass for the dead is really a celebration of life!
