Music Review: Ecce Fiat - The Annunciation

Ecce Fiat – The Annunciation is the first Gregorian chant recording of the Monastic Choir of Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey in Hulbert, OK. This album, perfectly suited for the time leading up to Christmas, includes the principle chants, which occur in the Divine Office and Holy Mass for the feast of the Annunciation.

I received a copy of this album and can wholeheartedly attest to its beauty.  I most highly recommend this to all of you as a wonderful addition to your collection, thus allowing you to listen to beautiful and sacred music at home, in your car, and on your Ipod.  It is stunningly beautiful!  Please click here to listen to a sample.

Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine monastery located in the diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was founded in 1999 by Notre-Dame de Fontgombault, a French Abbey which belongs to the Solesmes Congregation, as does Clear Creek. The Patron Saint of Clear Creek Abbey is the Blessed Virgin Mary under the mystery of her Annunciation. 
Like the other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, Clear Creek Abbey belongs to those institutes of religious life entirely dedicated to contemplative prayer, without apostolic works. A particular emphasis is placed on the solemn celebration of the liturgy in the Traditional (Tridentine) Rite.
