“To treat harmony and rhythm in this matter was a difficult matter. Facing numerous problems both large and small—that arose constantly—we understood that a flawless harmonization of Gregorian chant cannot be created by improvisation, no matter the competence and ability of the organist or harmonist.”
— Mons. Jules Van Nuffel, NOH Preface

New Gregorian Chant Project Needs Your Support!
published 9 September 2013 by Guest Author

HANT is beautiful, stunning, transcendent. Yet do we really know how it sounded centuries ago? Can we, by carefully listening, appreciate the differences between the modes?

This new kickstarter project ( website ) hopes to provide an ancient yet novel response to both these questions. Rooted in the work of renowned chant director Wassim Sarweh, this album will present one hymn in each of the eight? modes, in order, sung according to his haunting interpretation of Medieval chant.

We only have a few days left, and we’re so far from our goal! Listen to the video and consider chipping in to help fund this unique take on our Catholic musical tradition.
