Gregorian chant, often referred to as plainchant, is named after Pope Gregory the Great (6th century). Steeped as it is in the Church’s rich tradition and creativity, Pope Benedict XVI called Gregorian chant “the supreme model of sacred music.”

The Seminary of Christ the King, therefore, is grateful, to God and the Benedictine monks, who continue to hand on this great tradition of Gregorian chant.

Below is a recording of Vespers (Evening Prayer) chanted by the seminarians. Click on the appropriate day to play the chants and open the text.

A two CD set of Vespers and booklet of texts ($10.00 + postage) are available upon request.
