5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Music --- And a Comment About the Liner Notes November 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not very knowledgeable about music, but I know what I like, and I like this cd very much. These are lovely Gregorian chants that will enhance anyone's spiritual life. I found them great for prayer or meditation.

One thing I do know, is the art (and it is an art) of translation. An earlier reviewer commented that she (or he) found the liner notes objectionable because they referred to Catholic faith as a "cult." The original liner notes are in German, and the person who translated them into English was probably not a native English speaker. As a result, the language is somewhat stilted in places and some words, like "kultischen" have been mistranslated. The translator used the word "cult" when he should have used the a word closer to "worship". The translator had no intention of insulting The Faith and would probably be distressed to hear of this mistake.

A native English speaker would have translated these liner notes very differently.

So, by all means, if you are considering buying this album, go right ahead. It is a refreshing and lovely album, a great bargain, will give years of listening enjoyment. The liner notes are not meant to offend, they are merely awkwardly translated.

Peace Be With You.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great listening July 17, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is so wonderful! I had listened to many different recordings of gregorian chants before, but none had that unique quality that assured me that the person who wrote the chants was expressing their love for a higher power. But this one most certainly does. When I listen to it, I am taken back many centuries to a time when life was hard and people looked to God to heal the world. It is truely inspirational, and I would most certainly recommend this CD to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Atmospheric Music August 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am a fan of many styles of music, but ordering a CD of gregorian chant was a stretch for me. This is my first album of the genre, but I'm certainly not disappointed! Lost In Meditation: Meditative Gregorian Chants Volume One is everything you'd expect it to be. With gregorian chant music, there never seems to be too much diversity in the songs. This is because you shouldn't buy the music as if it were your favorite band -- it is completely atmospheric music. Whether used for meditation, background music to everyday activities, or a soundtrack to a much needed relaxation session in your solitude, gregorian chant is a peaceful and almost heavenly way to enjoy some time off in another world (often in a world where you can't help but imagine monks shifting through the humble rooms of a monastery). This particular selection of chants is perfect for the genre as far as I'm concerned. It is an all men choir, and the vocals are in perfect harmony. The recording quality is excellent, with just the right amount of reverb to bring the singing to life. For any fan of gregorian chant, or for anyone newly interested in it, this is a great CD to satisfy your chanting needs. And with a price like this for 21 tracks, you can't go wrong!

4.0 out of 5 stars First-rate recording at an exquisite price... September 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is the first of the two. The recording is high quality, and the singing is superb (for plainsong). At less than seven dollars, this CD is one you must add to your library - if only for the 'Miserere' and the 'Pange lingua'!

4.0 out of 5 stars Calming, Centering, a bit repetitive February 20, 2006
By Mojo
Format:Audio CD
This CD is great for creating a calm, focused environment. It can be used for meditation, relaxation,or as a sleep-aide. I have not stayed awake past the 3rd track when I listen with headphones after laying down to bed. The only complaint may be that all the tracks sound similar to me. The quality of the recording and singing is excellent. If you speak and understand Latin, you should derive even more from listening to this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars dont be scared by the price, this is good stuff. September 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For two years this was the only chants-type CD i was able to afford, so I've listened to it a lot. Still haven't got tired of it. Excellent background music. Recommended for washing cars, programming c, baking cookies and killing stress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music April 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I usually listen to new age music when meditating, but this is much more relaxing. I love this music so much that I often listen to it when doing unpleasant things like commuting, and doing chores. It makes everything feel epic and the sound of their voices is so beautiful. I wish I knew more about the singers and where it was recorded but that only adds to the mystery.
