Product Description


Follow the life of Christ: from the Great O Antiphon "O Emmanuel" heralding His birth, to the triumphant chants proclaiming his glorious Resurrection.
The Coming of Christ is the first of a series of three CDs using the exquisite music of Gregorian chant to describe and illuminate the life of Christ. Well-known pieces alternate with numerous antiphons to bring us closer to the time of Christ's birth and early childhood. The prophetic announcements, the longing and anticipation of Christ's birth as well as the joy of the angels' message are all vividly portrayed in the chant.
The Beloved Son, the second recording in the series, celebrates the public life and ministry of Christ. Christ's Passion, the ultimate sacrifice, is the subject of I Am With You, the third disc, which includes the chanted passion narrative according to the Gospel of John, featuring three cantors who assume the characters in the story of the passion.
This stirring music evokes the passion, mystery, and beauty of the life of Christ. Sung by the Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola and conducted by Dr. Mary Berry, CBE, these renowned experts bring a wealth of experience to the interpretation of the chant.
