This recording of Gregorian Chant from the Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola celebrates the Feast of the Resurrection, which is rooted in the earliest centuries of Christian worship. This "celebration of celebrations" is a time for rebirth, and this recording reflects that sense of personal renewal and joy. The Chants of Easter includes the Propers of Easter Day and Gregorian chants for the octave of Easter — daily services that are part of the week-long celebration of the Easter miracle. These chants are conveyed with careful attention to subtleties in the ancient Gregorian notation, inviting listeners to share the experience of Christ's resurrection in all its richness.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

“They sing in an admirably flexible manner with beautiful diction.”
MusicWeb International

“Not even the most seasoned monastic group delivers it better than the Gloriæ Dei Cantores Schola, a group that specializes in Gregorian chant. They sing in daily services and appear often in concert with (and as part of) the Gloriæ Dei Cantores. Like them, the Schola singers are renowned for their smooth sound, rhythmic flexibility, and intense sacred sentiment.”

    Very good!

    Posted by Cross Accent on 9th Dec 2021

    ... the group [Schola] shows good grasp of the nuance of the genre, with special focus on phrase coloring and word painting.

    An hour of pleasant instruction and instructive pleasure

    Posted by The American Organist on 9th Dec 2021

    The singers' experience and expertise come from daily chanting of the Benedictine Monastic Offices. This is then, 73 minutes of unaccompanied Gregorian chant expertly performed and flawlessly recorded, an hour of pleasant instruction and instructive pleasure. The booklet contains complete Latin texts with translations and valuable commentary.

    Marvelous!

    Posted by In Tune Magazine on 9th Dec 2021

    This disc contains what I believe are first recordings of the Gregorian Propers for Easter Day and the Octave for Easter. Spectacular stuff! Easter is, after all, the essential and most important of Christian feast days. Without Christ's resurrection, the whole belief would be meaningless. It stands to reason that one can expect some of the finest, most joyous chants set aside for Easter. The free-flowing lyric lines are indeed other-worldly in their refined sense of suspended animation. The effect, especially when performed so well as here, tends to float the mind. The chants are so soothing, that one can not help but escape feelings of anxiety or anger. Their appeal is general. One need not be religious to be moved, for the chants are catholic as well as Catholic. Sonically, the recording is super, and utterly free of gimmicks. The result is elegantly overpowering.
