In my surfing about this morning, I found a stupendous recording of the Gregorian chant version of the Litany of Loreto sung by all women.
The chant is easy. This could be done in parishes.
First, I think that Gregorian chant sung well by women is ethereal. For some years Rome I directed a schola of all women. They sang like angels and we became pretty well known. I have a great affinity of this sound.
This recording of the Litania Lauretana is just about perfect. They could soften the ends of phrases a touch. Note the confident pace of the litany. There is a rhythm to litanies. So often Litanies are slowed to the point of near brain death. One forgets what one is praying for in the first place.
The Choeur Grégorien de Paris is about as good as it gets when it comes to Gregorian chant recordings. I am delighted that there is now a female team as well.
