Since the spring of 1994 there have been sales of almost two million copies of the Angel recording of Chant, sung by the Benedictine monks of Santo Domingo de Silos in Spain. People are drawn irresistibly to its peaceful sound, but very few of them know anything about the tradition or meaning of Gregorian Chant or understand the language in which it is sung. In this companion book, which includes the full text of the Chant CD with translations from the Latin, Katharine Le Mee traces the historical and liturgical sources of the chant and provides answers to everyone's questions about what Gregorian Chant is, how it is written and sung, the latest research on its therapeutic qualities, and the extraordinary effect its simple, pure, unaccompanied tones can have on the body, mind, and heart. At a time when we are all feeling so overworked and under pressure, the calm, measured, almost transcendent sound of the monks singing these ancient melodies seems to put us in touch with our true selves. It is as though, in listening to their song, we share in the monks' aspirations, devotion, and experience. The sudden popularity of this music today -- after 1,300 years -- is indicative of the deep spiritual hunger manifesting everywhere. Here is a book that explains how and in what ways Gregorian Chant can begin to nourish us and transform our lives.… (més)

If you don't have a copy of the 'Liber Usualis' and many recordings of chant to sing along with, or (preferably) a church where you can join the 'Schola Cantorum,' and sing chant throughout the year, don't bother with this. It will only frustrate you and cause you to feel like you can't relate to the music on the CDs. Most of the chants (on the CDs) were recorded in the 1950s and early '60s (before Vatican II), and released on vinyl. Most Catholic churches don't sing these chants anymore. It is unfortunate that this is the case, since these chants are some of the most spiritual and moving music of western civilization. ( )

I'd rather sing it than listen to it. Singing it is like vocal yoga, and this book explains why. ( )

Buh-leh. Maybe 20% of this book is interesting information about the history & musicality of chant and its role in liturgy. The rest is new-age–ified nonsense about how chant can save the world. Lots of assertion and a few anecdotes about how chant evens out bodily energy and sound connects one organ with another and resonates us with the world and much other feebleminded nonsense of that sort. Granted, the interesting information is interesting, but it was scattered piecemeal through the nonsense, and I'm peed off that I had to slog through so much garbage to get to the gems.

If you want to acquire actual information about chant, you'd be better off finding another book. The only reason to bother with this one is that it has, in the back, the Latin text and English translations of the chants from the CD on the popularity of which this waste of trees was trying to piggyback.
