This session features something different from the recordings we’ve made so far: instead of devotional hymns in English, we’re presenting the sung texts of the Mass itself, in Latin.
On June 7, 2016, a group of singers met with conductor Michael Olbash at the glorious parish church in Clinton, Massachusetts, which bears the title of the Church of St. John the Guardian of Our Lady, to record the chants of the Mass For The Dead, with organ accompaniment in settings by Achille Bragers.
