"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."
— Contemporary account of the Consilium by Cardinal Antonelli

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.
