SPECTACULAR! New Gregorian Chant from the nuns of Gower Abbey: TENEBRAE

I am really happy to inform you that the wonderful nuns of Gower Abbey, the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, have a new disc and digital download:

Tenebrae at Ephesus


These are the RESPONSORIES of Tenebrae for all three days of the Triduum.  They are, arguably, the most beautiful chants of the entire liturgical year.

You can order from the sisters directly also: HERE

I had the digital cuts a few days ago thanks to Mother Cecilia and I have included little tastes of them in my last few LENTCAzTs, e.g. for Spy Wednesday at the end.  Ethereal.

When I did my canonical retreat for ordination, I went to the largest monastery of Benedictine nuns in Italy at Rosano.  It was Holy Week and they sang Tenebrae.  There were over 60 nuns and it was glorious.   In these recordings, you can have a sense of what it is to be in a chapel live with these chants sung by women.

Imagine… this is what certain people want to suppress.
