Chant: The Origins, Form, Practice, and Healing Power of Gregorian Chant

Katherine Le Mee, Author, Katharine Le Mee, Author Harmony $15 (169p) ISBN 978-0-517-70037-2
The album Chant, recorded by the Benedictine monks of the small Spanish monastery, Santo Domingo de Silos, is one of the biggest recording hits of the year., . Here, to accompany and explain the phenomenon of such worldwide appreciation of the medieval music, recording artist Le Mee discusses Gregorian chant itself and suggests some astute, if unproven, theories about why this music is so compelling; about why this previously esoteric form of devotional music has so taken the Western world by storm; and about what there is about the present historical moment that has made this recording by little-known monks so powerful and so accessible. Perhaps more significantly, she gives us some fascinating tools by which to fashion our own answers to these questions, as well as an important resource for listeners curious about this extraordinary music.
