Gregorian chants play an important role in day-to-day religious life at the Benedictine abbey of St. Joseph zu Gerleve (near Münster) and such chants can be heard at services on a daily basis. The recording on hand was made under the direction of P. Gottfried Meier OSB. The chants are unique testimony to medieval liturgy and have lost nothing of their fascination and magical impact over the centuries.

The chants chosen for this recording all originate from the earliest period and are taken from the basic repertoire of chants for mass, which in regard to both text and melody were completed by the mid to late eighth century at the latest. The available selection presents texts written for special occasions such as Advent and Lent.
