The album is described as follows by Valley Entertainment:
When attending a liturgical Office in the beautiful Abbey of Notre Dame de Fontgombault, one is easily penetrated with the prayerful atmosphere diffused by the chant of the monks. This famous recording of those very monks displays the atmosphere of peace and praise of the historical abbey church located near Bourges, France. The chants, recorded one after another as in an Office, are accompanied by the organ whose echo reminds us that we are really inside a church. A Catholic Benedictine monastery of the Solesmes Congregation, they have preserved the ancient Latin monastic liturgy with Gregorian chant. Simplicity, respect, peaceful devotion: everything in this albums leads to divine praise.I was given a copy of their CD to review and this morning listened to the chants on that CD. You can preview them by clicking here.
The quality is fantastic. The chant sounds absolutely outstanding and offers a chance for those of us who do not live in a monastic setting to experience the great joy, bliss, and peace in hearing these ancient prayers chanted by the monks. The album deserves 5 out of 5 stars and I would encourage you to pre-order it by clicking here.
