    Solesmes chants

    Has anyone ordered through that site? What type of money is needed?

    I wish everyone in the world could listen to those recordings, all day long.

    Masterfully done!

    (Has anyone ordered these? I only have the old LP's)

    And how do those relate to these?

    Solesmes chants

    Has Fr. Jerome Weber catalogued all these recordings?

    Well, the prices are listed in Euros. And they say they accept credit cards and mail to the USA, so it shouldn't be a huge problem.

    The process for ordering is unusual, it doesn't work the same as other kinds of shopping carts, but it doesn't appear to be too hard.

    If you look on the page, they have the link to Paraclete Press for the same CDs, and they have a discount on the complete set. I own at least 7 of them, and yeah, they're good, and worth the money.

  • Are they all chants from the Mass? I'm looking for some good Vespers chant CDs
  • Off hand, here are 3 vespers recordings, various in their approach to chant:

    3) Compostela ad Vesperas Sancti Iacobi - Ensemble Organum - Marcel Peres, Choirmaster - [ Ambrosie ]
  • Here are a couple more:
    1) (This is an interesting comparison of Vespers & Evensong)
    Evensong & Vespers at Kings' - Vespers for Feast of the BVM

    You realize, MJO, that you lengthen your time in purgatory each time you tempt me to spend even more money like this!
  • Argh! I should think that putting you onto good liturgy and music would be worth a few indulgences.
  • Here is another, quite interesting, one:
    Le manuscrit du Puy:
    L'office du Nouvel An a la Cathedral du Puy-en-Velay, XIIme-XVIme siecles
    Ensemble Gilles Banchois
    Dominique Vellard, Choirmaster
    [ Virgin Classics ]
