There is a video about the new Gregorian chant disc released not long ago by the FSSP, with chants for the Requiem Mass.
“Gregorian Chant has found a new audience.”, the voice over says towards the end of the video.
It seems that every time one of these discs comes out, it hits the charts and stays there. I remember when the disc from the monks of Silos came out. People went bananas. The wonderful discs of the Benedictine Sisters in Missouri have also been best sellers.
At the same time… GRRRRR!
Generations have been robbed robbed ROBBED! Cheated of their patrimony! The libs who controlled the interpretation of the Council on liturgy and music stole from us our treasury of sacred music and, in doing so, opened our liturgical worship up to tinkeritis and ditties so bad that not even a radical cephalectomy could remove the bad taste. When they destroyed Latin worship, the doors of our treasury were slammed shut and, into the vacuum, rushed slapped together dreck inspired by commercial jingles and sitcom tunes.
But I digress.
I would like for one of these groups systematically to record the chants for ordinaries and propers for feasts.
Here is the disc in question. It would be a great gift.
