In the past month, I have received as gifts a few excellent CDs of sacred music. I'd like to share them with you.
From Branson, for whom I am an RCIA sponsor, I received "Stella Maris" by Trio Mediaeval as a birthday present. This CD has several 12th and 13th century polyphonic pieces (including two odes to the Blessed Virigin Mary) and a contempory polyphonic Mass setting (Missa Lumen de Lumine) by Korean composer Sungji Hong.
From the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, I received "Echoes of Ephesus" in the mail. It has two dozen pieces of chant and polyphony (in both English and Latin), including some contemporary pieces. You can definitely detect the devotion of these women -- to God and to sacred music which praises Him and His saints!
And from the Wyoming Catholic College Choir, I received "Christmas In God's Country" in the mail. It has just shy of two dozen pieces of chant and polyphony (in both English and Latin), including one of my recent favorites, Angelus ad Virginem! The choirmaster is none other than Dr. Peter A. Kwasniewski, the author of several articles on sacred music and liturgy ("Aspects of the Liturgical Magisterium", Parts I, II, and III; "Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist" [since clarified as "... of Holy Communion"] at EWTN).
Consider purchasing these beautiful CDs of beautiful sacred music. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
