“Father Daniel’s special work during his stay at Ihonatiria was with the children. Their parents had not trained or disciplined them, they were utterly lawless and bad-tempered, but with infinite forbearance and kindliness the missionary became a favorite with them… Having taught them to sing, he proceeded to train the children to chant the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Commandments, which he had rendered into Huron rhymes. Formed into a choir, they added beauty and solemnity to the chapel services and attracted great numbers of their elders to Mass.”
— From the Life of Saint Antoine Daniel (d. 1648)

Recordings for A New Book of Old Hymns
published 20 February 2016 by Veronica Brandt

HEN IT COMES TO A HANDY BOOK of Gregorian chant hymns there is one book I keep coming back to, time and time again. I am the compiler, so I can’t be said to be a completely impartial judge, but as I have had the longest time to grow tired of it, maybe that means something when I still recommend it after a decade or more.

As a reply to those who have requested recordings over the years, I offer this tour of such a collection.


Feel free to browse the curated collection of recordings of the music.

At the moment you can even download the whole book here.

I have just updated the files at Lulu and Amazon, keeping page numbers the same, but making minor improvements.
