Gregorian Chant Thread

What’s so odd is that I’m a young adult. I’m not buying into the popular secular music that 99% of my high school listens to. I really have no interest in hearing about violence, gangs, drugs, or any other type of bad influences that are often in this type of media I love this unique genre of music and it was my original curiosity about Catholicism - now I’ve looked into this church and have every intention to convert. I also enjoy “epic” music, such as the ones that the movie trailers frequently play. These usually involve some form of opera or chant and is accompanied by a background of orchestra.

List good gregorian chants here: Streaming MP3 or iTunes
Format of listing - (Title - Artist - Link if needed)

MY RECOMMENDATIONS:

  1. The Fall of Rome - Kerry Muzzey - ilike.com/artist/Kerry+Muzzey

  2. Angelus - Monks of the Abbey of Notre Dame - youtube.com/watch?v=d5p_U8J0iRQ

Your are not alone - forty years ago when I was a senior in high school . I did not protest; I didn’t let my hair grow long; I didn’t protest the Vietnam war but enlisted in 1971.

So: here is the one album which retains that which is familiar to the folks of my current generation:
