A rare, intimate, and realistic gem of Gregorian Chant.
CantArte is a fine ensemble of 14 male vocalists formed in 1991 based upon the idea of former cathedral choir and church music director Hubert Velten. Velten (1938-2010) is the former director of the Academy of Catholic Church Music and Music Education in Regensburg.
His sensitivity to the performance of Sacred Music is captured in "Gregorian Christmas".
The quality provides to this subjective listener a sense of tranquility of an intimate worship space that emanates from the Sacred Factor found in higher levels of worship music. It invokes contemplative meditation in the evolution from Awe to Reverence and Metanoia.
