Father Godehard Joppich leads Benedictine Abbey for this recording of Gregorian Chants.

"The present recording of Gregorian chants is an attempt to make use of the most up-to-date research into the chant in interpretation. We should like to be able to present the melodies in their original flexible rhythms. This intention can only be satisfactorily realized when authenticity of expression is allied to a revised musical text. It was therefore found necessary to re-examine the melodies as published in the Editio Vaticana. Indeed the Second Vatican Council encouraged us in this aim by recommending that Gregorian chant should continue to be of primary importance in the liturgy, while the chant-books already available should be critically revised." - from liner notes by Father Godehard Joppich
