Notes & Reviews:

This recording by the Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola depicts the sacred mystery of Christmas in the ancient melodies of Gregorian chant. The first of four masses, the quietly joyful Ad Missam in Vigilia, builds on the anticipation of the coming event. The second mass, the tender Ad Missam in Nocte, is sung at the hour traditionally observed as the time of Christ's birth. The third mass, celebrated at dawn on Christmas Day, Ad Missam in Aurora, expresses the coming of the light into the world. The fourth mass, Ad Missam in Die, is a jubilant expression of religious salvation. Also included are a selection of antiphons honoring the Virgin Mary.
