Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary CD: In Sæcula Sæculórum

Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary - In Saecula Saeculorum
In Saecula Saeculorum (Cover)

In Sæcula Sæculórum is a new collection of Gregorian chant and polyphony recorded by the seminarians at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska.

Selections are drawn from the entire liturgical year, and display the sacred glory and beauty of sacred music. Existing for almost 1,500 years, Gregorian chant emerged under Pope Saint Gregory the Great, for whom the style of music is named. His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI calls Gregorian chant a “supreme model of sacred music.”

Each morning our seminarians place themselves in the Presence of God asking Him for assistance (Track 1, Deus in adiutórium) and the day ends with a hymn of Mary, the Mother of God, praising her and begging for her maternal protection (Track 22, Salve Regína). Throughout the day, the seminary community sings several times, using the ancient Latin chants for the Divine Office and for Holy Mass. Whether in the classroom or in the chapel, Gregorian chant plays an essential role in the traditional formation of future priests at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary.  In Saecula Saeculorum is currently available in the seminary’s Amazon bookstoreon iTunes, or purchase In Sæcula Sæculórum  from Fraternity Publications.
