  • Lost in Meditation: Meditative Gregorian Chants, Vol. 1
    from Delta.
    Beautiful for meditation, prayer, contemplation. A bargain!

  • The Second Circle: Love Songs of Francesco Landini
    from Harmonia Mundi Franc.
    There is no doubt that Anonymous 4 is a highly skilled ensemble. The combination of exceptionally beautiful voices with technical perfection has attracted attention for them from all over the world. As Francesco Landini is my favorite composer of all time, I was quick to purchase this album....

  • Lost in Meditation: Meditative Gregorian Chants, Vol. 2
    from Delta.
    As you play these Gregorian Chants, think of the days when the monastic people worshipped their God in a divine manner. Picture the morning mist rising outside of some stone Monastery in the forest, and picture the sound of the chants of these devout men worshipping their creator. This CD caputres...

  • Music Of The Crusades
    from Polygram Records.
    This CD (a reissue of an LP dating from the 1970s) brings the Crusades and its people to life. There are recruiting songs, songs of loss and longing, songs of dedication. There is a beautiful song full of reverent wonder at the experience of being in the Holy Land. And there is the song purportedly...

  • Gregorian Chant
    from Polygram Records.
    When I picked this cd up used for $2 I was thinking "Well this will probably be one of those cd's that I listen to once and then it will end up in my pile of cd's". Well little did I know that this would be one of the most played cd's I own. This is one of the best chant cd's I have ever heard (and...

  • Chant
    from Angel Classics.
    I can't remember exactly when I first bought this CD, but I know I was still in high school. I used to listen to it to relax, and sometimes even played it while I slept. Now, I have found it is great for retaining a meditative state while practicing yoga. This isn't for everyone. I enjoy it because...

  • 1000 - A Mass for the End of Time / Anonymous 4
    from Harmonia Mundi Franc.
    I have always been highly suspicious of "spiritual people". Why them and not me? I was only looking for pretty music when I, a rock n roller by upbringing, purchased this CD. What followed during the listening of this CD, was a deeply meditative state as I let the music, so beautiful words cannot...

  • Sinners & Saints - The Ultimate Medieval and Renaissance Music Collection
    from Polygram Records.
    I defy anyone to listen to this CD in a foul mood and actually still be grumpy at the end of its playing. You can't help but feel your spirits rise as your fingers and toes start tapping along with the beats of the tambourines and drums. I don't even have to have it playing - I can just hear the...

  • Guitarist John Williams
    from Sony.
    "The" Guitarist, John Williams. I rated this a 4 star only because I'm not that crazy about the Houghton compositions and the last set of Gymnopedies. But, John Boy, please compose for us another fine guitar work (with or without orchestra)! Aeolian Suite is mighty fine--the more I hear it, the more...

  • Sing Ye Heavens - Hymns for All Time
    from Collegium.
    Rutter has won many fans throughout the world for his passionate, creative yet tasteful contributions to church music. Here is a hymn collection with several traditional choices along with Rutter originals.

    Several comprise Rutter's remakes, which is most cases are very diginified and not at all...

  • Dances of the Renaissance
    from Polygram Records.
    This older analog recording sounds wonderful on CD, and the musical performances are well played and spirited. The only 2 reservations are that I'd like original instruments (but that doesn't negate the great recording here) and the bell/glockenspiel type instrument that is heard from time to time...

  • The Best Classical Album in the World... Ever!
    from Angel Classics.
    I purchased this C.D. a few months ago as an intro to classical music.

    By now, I have found out Who my favorite composers are (Tchaikovsky, Bach, Wagner,), and I own several classical C.D.'s. "The best Classical Album in the world..." is still the worst classical C.D. in my collection......

  • Mysteria: Gregorian Chants
    from Elektra/Asylum.
    I came upon Chanticleer through my interest in Renaissance polyphony. I bought their recording of Palestrina's Missa Pro Defunctis and was extremely pleased. I thought at first that they were explicitly dedicated to early music (I had only come across the Palestrina and this chant CD); my impression...

  • Chant II
    from Angel Classics.
    This collection is not merely a mixture of medieval chants. The music itself instills both sorrow and wonder. The Gregorian chants create a profound understanding of society from the time of the unfortunate demise of Rome to the transition into Enlightened society. The Latin lyrics contain so much...

  • Sacred Treasures III: Choral Masterworks From Russia and Beyond
    from Hearts of Space.
    Superbly and majestically sung and recorded. Disagree with another reviewer on track 5; I don't think this one fits at all with the theme and spirit of the album. Track 12, The Lord's Prayer is perhaps the pinnacle - though not the most complex, surely the most reverent and spiritual. This one, plus...

  • Gregorian Chants: The Best of the Benedictine Monks of St. Michael's
    from Delta.
    One really hears the passion and life in the voices of these monks--keep in mind that this is not merely a group of singers who have assembled in the studio to record a CD, but rather, men whose lives are totally wrapped up in the mysteries of which they sing. I can really hear their struggles and...

  • Machaut: Messe de Notre Dame / The Hilliard Ensemble
    from Hyperion.
    I heard a live performance (on NPR) of the music of this CD, and then bought the CD. I was a little bit disappointed, but not much. I treasure this CD of the first great polyphonic mass in the history of music. It's just that the virtuosic angular ornamentation in the CD was even more angular and...

  • Perotin / The Hilliard Ensemble
    from Ecm Records.
    I bought the Hilliard Ensemble's Perotin recording after reading the section on the evolution of medieval music from plainsong to organum in Grout's history of Western music. Grout praises Perotin's music, and this recording shows that praise to be well justified. The music is magnificent: dark,...

  • A Portrait Of Anonymous 4
    from Harmonia Mundi Franc.
    I learned about this quartet though a review in Stereophile magazine. Although they don't publish a lot of reviews, I've had exceptionally good luck with their past picks and have been able to branch out successfully in new musical directions as a result.

    These four women are virtuoso female...
