“Iconographic tradition has theologically interpreted the manger and the swaddling cloths in terms of the theology of the Fathers. The child stiffly wrapped in bandages is seen as prefiguring the hour of his death: from the outset, he is the sacrificial victim, as we shall see more closely when we examine the reference to the first-born. The manger, then, was seen as a kind of altar.”
— Pope Benedict XVI (2012)

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.
