Chant rules - OK?


Interesting article in The Telegraph about the new-found fame of the Cistercian monks of Heiligenkreuz near Vienna. Their CD of Gregorian Chant has hit the classical top ten.

"What we are doing is not an artistic performance but continuous prayer," said Johannes Paul. "That is one reason people love the music so much - art and the sacred have become separated in the modern world."


Quite.

It is a wonderful CD. One of my best buys of the year.
