Description

We are happy to announce our new recording, entitled Rorate Cœli: Marian Sounds of Advent. The recording took place in our church in April 2022 and was released in September 2022, by The Sophia Music Group/De Montfort Music. The CD features the Saturday Mass of the Blessed Virgin in Advent, some pieces from the Divine Office in Advent, the Mass of the Vigil of Christmas, and two polyphonic pieces composed by Mark Donnelly.  The CD comes with lyrics in Latin, English, and French in the accompanying booklet, which also includes a musical commentary on the spirit of the pieces.

From Rorate Cœli, the first words of the Saturday Mass of the Blessed Virgin in Advent, to the Mass of the vigil of Christmas, listeners will be treated to the mystical sounds of the Advent/early Christmas season. This chant, as sung acapella by the monks of Clear Creek Abbey, transports the listener to the sacred rhythm of the monastic liturgy in honor of Mary, with the musical language of Gregorian chant and of selections of polyphonic sacred choral music. Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey, located in Oklahoma, USA, is a young and vibrant monastic community dedicated to the contemplative praying of the sung liturgy. The richness of the Latin liturgical lyrics (which the music faithfully echoes) is available in English and French in the accompanying booklet, which also includes a musical commentary on the spirit of the pieces. Let the light of Advent and Christmas enter your heart and your home this year with Rorate Cœli: Marian Sounds of Advent by The Monks of Clear Creek.
