// August 18th, 2013 // Sacred Liturgy / Sacred Music
Thanks to a 1994 CD by the Spanish monks of Santo Domingo de Silos, Gregorian chant hit the top of the charts worldwide, and has continued to be a listening favorite for many people, whether they are Catholic or not. So many listen to Gregorian chant for relaxation, yet Gregorian chant is meant for the liturgy. In this program Susan gives a basic introduction to the various types of Gregorian chant and how the Church has used them over the centuries. Susan focuses on the spirituality of chant, and how it can draw us closer to God.
