THE MONKS OF SOLESMES

This beautiful collection includes Introits, Graduals, Alleluias, Offertories, Communion pieces, Lauds & Vespers Antiphons, and Hymns.

The clarity, accuracy – and haunting, compelling power – of their sound has no equal. According to experts, the recordings of the Monks of Solesmes are the purest, most genuine, and finest recordings of Gregorian Chant available anywhere. “Paraclete Press offers a superb list of outstanding Christian music which is magnificently performed by the monks of Solesmes.” (Reviewer’s Bookwatch) “Setting the standard for Gregorian performance.” (American Record Guide)
