This Christmas Gregorian chant recording of the monastic choir of Fontgombault was recorded in 1981 in the Abbey Church, a jewel of Romanesque architecture that dates from the 12th century. It includes the chants of the Midnight and Christmas day Masses, two Responsories from the Office of Matins, and the gracious Sequence Ave María grátia plena.
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 completed the “Chapter House” in 2023 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.
