Gregorian Chant for Meditation

This is the chant of the European monastic traditions, which most people know as Gregorian chant (although Western chant includes other types, such as Taize and Anglican).   It’s a subdued, monophonic sound, very peaceful, and makes for an excellent backdrop that holds the space and doesn’t pull on your attention.

Here are a couple of very nice Gregorian chant albums.

Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos – Chant

The Abbey of Santo Domingo de Silos is a Benedictine monastery located in the Northern Spain.  This album became famous during the nineties, when it became the bestselling Gregorian chant album worldwide, followed by Chant II (among many other of the monks musical   works).   Here is a link to the Abbey website, which opens with a really sweet group photo of the monks themselves.   AbadiaDeSilos.es/bienven.htm

Capella Gregoriana – Lost in Meditation – Meditative Gregorian Chants

Another excellent chant album – calm and soothing.
