Description

The complete Office of Sunday Vespers and Compline in Gregorian chant.

The great bell of Solesmes calls the listener to the complete Office of Sunday Vespers and Compline on this exquisite chant recording. Includes Gregorian antiphons, psalms, hymns and the Angelus.

“We hear the bells of Solesmes at the opening of the recording entitled, Vespers and Compline. The monastic offices are performed complete with the combination of psalms, antiphons, readings and canticles that could be heard in any Benedictine house daily. Their earliest recordings …became classics in the field and ensured the monks’ popular authority in the performance of chant. Vespers and Compline …reveal the fruits of some more recent research into Gregorian rhythmic patterns and were recorded under the direction of Dom Jean Claire, choirmaster of the Abbey and noted Scholar. For historical interest, these recordings are fascinating …and for the living tradition that Solesmes commenced and its popular appeal. ”  —Green Guide
