Inspiring, beautiful music of Chant at it's very best, by the beloved Benedictine Monks of Norcia, Italy. Benedicta: Marian Chant from Norcia is a glorious recording of 33 tracks of Gregorian chant that transports the listener to the Monks’ idyllic monastery in Italy.
The stunning album includes favorite Marian antiphons such as Regina Caeli, Salve Regina, Ave Maria and Ave Regina Caelorum, but also previously unrecorded chant versions of responsories, and a piece originally composed by the monks (Nos Qui Christi Iugum). Marian antiphons are a group of hymns in the Gregorian chant collection of the Catholic Church, sung in honor of the Virgin Mary
Some pieces are sung by the entire group, some by smaller ensembles of monks and others by soloists, imbuing BENEDICTA with a vast range of sound and color. Recorded on location at the monastery in Norcia, Italy, the album was produced by 11-time Grammy Award-winning producer Christopher Alder and engineered by Grammy-Award winning engineer Jonathan Stokes.
