“Ecce Fiat – The Annunciation,” is the first Gregorian chant recording of the monastic choir of Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey. It was recorded in the spring of 2012, in the new, partially-completed Abbey Church, which has been under construction since 2010. The wind and other sounds of spring also found their way onto the recording, giving it a unique character and a truly “Clear Creek” flavor. This album includes the principle chants which occur in the Divine Office and Holy Mass for the feast of the Annunciation.

The disc comes with a booklet which has the English translation alongside the Latin.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
