I really do feel you need to play this in a room with the right ambience, and the clarity of a CD hifi system, rather through a pair of computer's speakers, as the best way to recreate that 'live presence' of almost being there, and being immersed in it.

- It is interesting to note, on how they regard this:-

"The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the great summer feast of the Virgin, has a double importance to the monks of Fontgombault. Besides being the Patroness of France, Our Lady in the mystery of her Assumption is also the Patroness of the Abbey of Fontgombault. This CD includes the chants of the Mass and the Office of Vespers for the Feast of the Assumption, August 15."

Absolutely Paul, when we want to truly enjoy (listening) to the music, we need hifi system, usually I will use hifi headphones.

ExCelciuS,

I might be bale to help with a list of good Gregorian, polyphonic and byzantine chant. I can recommend some albums but the best thing is to download them from Amazon.com because usually on each album there are some songs that are great and others that are not so great. Let me compile a list and get back with you.

Zach

ExCelciuS,

Mostly I prefer polyphonic chant that developed during the renaissance but I also like Gregorian chant and byzantine chant.

Some great polyphonic chant albums are:

1. Lassus: Masses for Five Voices; Infelix ego
http://www.amazon.com/Lassus-Masses-...2002195&sr=8-2

2. Lassus by Orlande de Lassus
http://www.amazon.com/Lassus-Orlande...2002195&sr=8-1

from this album the Introitus, Kyrie, and Graduale are very good and highly recommended. Also the last track on the album Prophetiae Sibyllarum - 13. Sibylla Agrippa

3. Orlande de Lassus: Sacred Choral Music; Missa ad imitationem Vinum bonum
http://music.barnesandnoble.com/Orla...e/743625015027


I will continue with more in the next post.

4. Ave Maria from Josquin desprez "Josquin: Missa L'homme armé; Ave Maria; Absalom fili mi"

Ave Maria- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=dm_mu_dp_trk1


5. Track number 11 from this album composed by Ockeghem, if you can find it.
http://www.amazon.com/Ockeghem-Requi...2003945&sr=1-7

I noticed you can get the album used for as low as $5.00 on Amazon

6. Salve Regina: Gregorian Chant

Tracks 5, 12, and 14 are particularly good

track 5 adoro te devote- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=dm_mu_dp_trk5

track 12- Sub tuum praedsidium http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...dm_mu_dp_trk12

track 14 - Inviolata- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...dm_mu_dp_trk14

Continued in next post.....

This album is not bad-Ave Maria
http://www.amazon.com/Ave-Maria-Greg...d_bxgy_m_img_b

particularly tracks 1 and 2


On to some byzantine chant. I have just started listening to some but I have a few recommendations. Byzantine chant chant is used in the Greek Orthodox church and in the Byzantine Rite of the Catholic church. You might find some of these interesting.

1. Divine Liturgy in English in Byzantine Chant
http://www.amazon.com/Divine-Liturgy...ref=pd_sim_m_4

tracks 1, 6, and 8 are good however you might want to check out the whole album

2. The Fall of Constantinople
http://www.amazon.com/Fall-Constanti...2005086&sr=1-1

track 5 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=dm_mu_dp_trk5

track 14 communion verse- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...dm_mu_dp_trk14

3. Metropolitan Museum of Art: Music of Byzantium

track 1 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=dm_mu_dp_trk1

track 10 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...dm_mu_dp_trk10

track 3- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=dm_mu_dp_trk3

I hope this helps get you started,

Zach
