From Saint John's Abbey

The Gregorian Chant Schola of Saint John's Abbey includes monks as well as theology and music students; men and women sing together, which roughly replicates the medieval sound of monks and choir boys singing in octaves.

In this album they sing with Mary and the saints, starting with the feast of the Annunciation in which the angel announced to the Virgin Mary that she would bear Jesus, and then singing through the church year and marking the saints on their individual feast days, culminating with the feast of All Saints' Day on November 1st.

Recorded live on location at the Emmaus Chapel on the campus of saint John's University, Collegeville, Minnesota.
