New Edition revised, Expanded and Translated into English by dom Gregory Casprini and Robert Edmondson
Published posthumously, this book is a collection of five lectures given during one of dom Hourlier's youth seminars on Gregorian chant. It also includes two chapters on musical and liturgical spirituality taken from his notes. A riveting work, it reflects on the characteristics of Gregorian chant that have attracted the attention of so many: its permanence, beauty and history, as well as its liturgical, sacred and philosophical qualities.
Richard Pugsley, Ed.D, educator, author and specialist in Gregorian chant, says “Dom Jacques Hourlier's explanations are gentle, lucid and provocative, leading the reader to much greater understanding of the meaning of the chant. This book reveals some of his greatest insights, and as such remains a unique and important text on the subject.”
