While listening to recordings of chant from the monks of Santo Domingo de Silos, I realized that the Gloria Jeffrey Tucker and I discussed on the net last month was on disc 2.
When I listen to this compilation, I usually pop in disc 1. Did you know it was recorded back in the 70’s? There’s a disc 2 that was recorded in patches through to the early 80’s.
It’s also in By Flowing Waters, both in Latin and in English.
The American (single cd) release was also reviewed by Rolling Stone, of all publications.
Anyway, trivia aside, I agree with Jeffrey that this is a way decent plainsong setting. I think it’s perfect for Ordinary Time, but I’d probably do more festive settings for Easter and Christmas seasons.
