I received this book/CD combo as a gift. The giver requested that I listen and read immediately. Howl! From start to finish, I laughed! The chant (grunt) is authentic, and true to Gregorian modes. The musicians are first rate, though I am not sure how they recorded this without laughing!
Basically, what Boynton and her cohorts have done, is spoof the ever-so-popular "Chant" recordings. It details the day in the lives of some barn animals. The humor is subtle, and it would almost be worth it to learn Latin all over again. After studying the Chant form for a semester in college, I am sure that I find the humor funnier than the average non-music major. Still, it is a great parody that everyone should hear at least once.

If you weren't paying attention to the words, you'd think you were listening to a true Chant CD. The music is beautiful, but from the text, you know that they don't take themselves too seriously. It's a hoot! two hooves up!

Grunt is an absolutely delightful sendup of the various popular "Chant" CDs. Boynton skewers the superficially spiritual with deadly aim, and tosses in some great sounding chant at the same time. She manages to do this without being in the least offensive (and this from someone who learned her first Latin chant more that 40 years ago -and still sings in the choir.) The polyphony of the chickens is not to be missed. Gopher baroque, Sandra! Don't let the turkeys get you down!

This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. If you just listen to the music, you'd be fooled into thinking this is real Gregorian chant. But if you listen carefully or if you take a peek at the lyrics in the illustrated booklet, you're in for a real treat! This is wonderful satire of the Gregorian chanting phenomenon. Would make a great gift for Latin scholars!

This is Gregorian chant done in Pig Latin. The text is light-hearted. It is funny in parts, a spoof as it were, but done with full respect both to the musical form and to the language. The conceit does grow thin before the end of the work, but the music itself is good enough to warrant it being a full-length piece. (The music is good enough, that is, provided that you appreciate the chant form. If you need a beat or at least a meter in your music, than don't bother with GRUNT. Have a chuckle at the idea of doing a monastic-style chant in Pig Latin, then move on without ordering this CD.)

I'm glad Fenno has found something rewarding to do since his retirement from the Glee Club!

This book is extremely funny especially if you know Latin. Being a Latin student I thought it was very funny and enjoyed the CD very much. I reccomend this book and listening to the CD because with the CD you can't even tell that they're singing Old McDonald or other stuff.(monks ar singing) Also, the pigs in the story talk in Pig Latin which adds humor.
