Notes and Editorial Reviews

After the success of the original edition, here is the re-release including the full musical scores on pdf as performed by the Schola Musica. The Beatles' melodies are so well-crafted, yet so simple that they can truly claim their natural origin in the traditional Gregorian Chant. '...As the song themsleves, all are enchanting, pardon the pun. Most effective as chants are There's A Place, Tomorrow Never Knows, Within You Without You, The Inner Light, Mother Nature's Son, Because, The Word and Let It Be. (From these titles, you get the picture of the type of Beatles songs they went for.) Should you add this disc to your collection? If you like Gregorian Chant, find it an effective way of reflecting or altering your mood, or want to hear Read more something in this style that's familliar and that you can understand, then the answer is YES.'
