Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gloriae Dei Cantores presents The Chants of Angels, a new super-audio CD collection of glorious sacred melodies focused on these heavenly guardians, guides and friends. Using the ancient melodies and texts of the early Christian church, each Gregorian chant depicts a new aspect or story about angels. For those who are new to Gregorian chant and for seasoned scholars, The Chants of Angels allows listeners to simply close their eyes and be surrounded by these songs of prayer and comfort. Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola’s “expert renditions of Gregorian chant” (New York Times) are the result of years of study with the late Dr. Mary Berry CBE of the Schola Gregoriana (Cambridge, England) and the Monks of St. Peter’s Abbey, Solesmes, France, as well Read more as daily practice of Gregorian chant in worship.
