Editorial Reviews


Here's a set that for many collectors will slam the monk's gate on further chant acquisitions. In other words, this could be as close to a definitive compilation as there ever will be. What's more, it's beautifully packaged, intelligently programmed, and authentically performed--by real monastic, cathedral, and abbey choirs in authentic locations in France. The three discs were compiled from the catalog of Studio SM, a French label that has specialized in recording chant for more than 40 years. Although there is some variance in sound quality and in the performing styles of the different choirs, the overall production values are impressive. Solemn and uplifting moments mingle with the charming: during one of the selections, we hear both the bells and birds of Tarnie Abbey. The 40-page booklet contains extensive liner notes, photographs, texts, and translations. --David Vernier
