Sacred: Music for Quiet Contemplation



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Sublime and calming plainchant and celebrations of Gloria, Kyrie, Sanctus and Magnificat invoke the glories of the Christian faith. A rich sound, a fine acoustic and expressive music lift the spirits. Perfect for mediation and relaxation during a quiet moment of the day. Here we have the plainchant - music consisting of a single melodic line - sung in original way. It was composed for use in the liturgy of the early church, and its musical shapes and contours influenced most subsequent forms and styles of music in the West. This album presents every facet of the religious life and belief of the Christian church, Christmas, Easter and, in particular, the liturgy – the prayers and worship of God – which form an essential part of that life and belief. Central to that belief is the celebration of the Eucharist, in which the crucifixion of Christ is symbolically re-enacted. ‘Kyrie’, ‘Gloria’ and ‘Sanctus’ are key elements of that service. The music spans several centuries and offers works from the Western and Eastern Christian traditions.
