Gregorian Rosary - Joyful Mysteries
47:55
Gregorian Chant Academy
81 Views · 1 month ago

⁣Due to many requests over the past year, here is my own version of the "Gregorian Rosary." Instead of making a generic rosary for any and all mysteries, I have opted to use melodies which suitably represent each of the mysteries, beginning here with the Joyful mysteries. Next Lent, I plan on releasing the Sorrowful mysteries, followed by the Glorious in Eastertide. May God bless you and our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us! It is my hope that this may help others to pray the rosary more devoutly; to more easily meditate on the mysteries of the most holy rosary.

"Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the World... So many souls go to hell because they have no one to pray for them." ~ Our Lady of Fatima, 1917
"“The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families…that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.” ~ Sr Lucia dos Santos of Fatima
"The Rosary is the weapon of our times." ~ St Padre Pio
"Give me an army praying the rosary and I will conquer the world." ~ Pope Pius IX
“One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.” ~ St Dominic

Hell’s gates are smashed, my King He wins.

CHORUS:
Christ our King conquers everything.
The battle of the King – war is raging.
Christ our King, He’s dominating.
Will you fight for our Warrior King?

The King of kings with His Queen Mother.
The Lord of lords our Friend and Brother,
With Angels and Saints on He goes,
To victory against the infernal foe.

CHORUS

When all seems a loss, nailed to a tree,
His death on the Cross means victory.
Devil and sin and death are dethroned.
Christ risen from the dead - our King enthroned.

Annual Retreat 2021 - Sierra Mountains & Yosemite National Forest

Fr. Maximilian M. Dean
28 Views · 3 months ago

⁣Last year for my annual retreat I spent a week in awe of God as I immersed myself in His creative handiwork in the eastern, central Sierra Mountains. This video captures some of the breathtaking highlights of my days there. Special thanks to the Naaden Family who hosted me at Reverse Creek Lodge in June Lake, CA, lent me hiking boots, a vehicle, and a kayak, and gave me the privilege of joining them for dinner and their family Rosary twice (the alpha and omega of my retreat). Five of the lakes featured in this video are from the June Lake Loop.

You'll hear three recordings that form the soundtrack which are taken from three different albums I've recorded over the years:

1. Aria in D - J.S. Bach: performed by Mariposas Ensemble. I recorded and mixed this as the opening piece on my album "Excitabo Auroram" (I'm not playing any of the instruments on this track, just the sound engineer).
2. I Will Lead You into Solitude: a song I wrote and recorded on my album "Hide Me in His Heart" and which appears on my anthology album "Memorare" as a live version.
3. Live a Life Worth Living: a song from my album "You Walk on Water" which seemed all too appropriate for kayaking.

And, yes, those are real Pennsylvania crickets singing away the divine praises during my introduction. They, with the humidity and lush green foliage of this area, were here to welcome me back to my Hermitage when I returned.

Gradual "Christus factus est" | Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Sept 14

⁣The text of this Gradual "Christus factus est" is taken from St Paul's letter to the Philippians 2: 8-9.
This chant is sung on both Holy Thursday and the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Sept 14.
But the verses immediately preceding those found in the Gradual are also critically important for our instruction and are given here:
"1. If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of charity, if any society of the spirit, if any bowels of commiseration: 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that you be of one mind, having the same charity, being of one accord, agreeing in sentiment. 3 Let nothing be done through contention: neither by vain glory. But in humility, let each esteem others better than themselves: 4 Each one not considering the things that are his own, but those that are other men's. 5 For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. 8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross. 9 For which cause, God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which is above all names: 10 That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth: 11 And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father."

⁣The text for the Introit "Nos autem gloriari" is based upon St Paul's letter to the Galations 6:14 ("But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world"), while the Psalm verse is taken from Ps. 66:2, "May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his countenance to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us." This chant is sung on both Holy Thursday and the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, September 14.

As Jesus Christ teaches us, by word and example, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." ~ Matt 16:24 and Mark 8:34

⁣The offertory chant "Precatus est Moyses" is from the 12th Sunday after Pentecost (22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time) and is the prayer of Moses, beseeching God not to destroy His own people, the Israelites, who continue to offend Him time and time again. The Gospel for this Sunday is the parable of the Good Samaritan, where in we first hear the greatest Law of Life, "thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, etc" followed by "and thy neighbor as thyself." Then comes the parable which closes with the scribe answering the question of: which was neighbor to the man half-dead, with "He that showed mercy unto him." Jesus responds, "Go and do thou in like manner." Jesus is the Good Samaritan and we the man, half-dead in sin. As God showed mercy to the wicked Israelites at the prayer of Moses, so will he also show mercy to us if we repent and do penance and show mercy unto others. But as Moses was not only a type of Christ, but also a type of St Peter and all subsequent popes, Moses' prayer is a kind parable itself, showing us how prelates in authority (priests, bishops, and especially the pope) have the power to call down mercy upon the whole Church if they will but do penance themselves and pray. (the Inn keeper is also a type of the Papacy and the Church)

Therefore, let us pray for our priests, bishops and the pope that they may cease offending Our Lord, "who is too much offended already", cease preaching heresy, cease persecuting the Church itself, be converted and pray to God that He may have mercy on us all.

Salve Regina - Simple tone (Hope in a Vale of Tears)
1:55
Gregorian Chant Academy
111 Views · 4 months ago

⁣The "Salve Regina" is possibly the most well known and beloved of any Gregorian Chant, the text of which we pray at the end of every rosary "Hail, holy Queen...". The harmony in this recording is from my good friends of Harpa Dei who always make such beautiful, simple harmonies.

Though I am not sure exactly when the melody of this simple tone was written, I find it so incredibly beautiful in its wonderful simplicity. The text has us recognize ourselves as exiles of heaven as children of Adam and Eve, living in this world as in a Vale of Tears (for our true joy and happiness is to be found in heaven), while confidently and lovingly turning to Mary for help, seeing her as our "Mother," "hope," "sweetness" and implicitly our "joy" (and the melody reflects this so wonderfully). Both the melody and the text remind us and reassure us, that we have a true mother in Mary, more loving and caring than any other earthly mother could even imagine, and thus we can have complete confidence and hope that she - who loves us more than ourselves - will do all in her power to help save us and lead us to Christ. No matter what kind of crisis or confusion may be going on in the world - whether it be in the Church, economy, governments, health, etc - we have nothing to fear so long as we stay near to Our Lady. And if we are faithful to her and her Son, Jesus Christ, she will not hesitate to show Him to us at the hour of our death, and take us to heaven for all eternity.
"Pray for us, O holy Mother of God; that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

Number 1 in Folk Music are Dominican Friars???

⁣Hillbilly Thomists – New Album - https://www.hillbillythomists.com/

Holy Ghost Power - https://www.hillbillythomists.com/music

The Hillbilly Thomists are a band of friars of the Order of Preachers.

After playing music together for several years, they released their eponymous debut album in 2017, which reached #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart and mostly consisted in bluegrass standards and Americana favorites. Since then, the friars in the band have been doing what Dominican friars do: contemplating, studying, and preaching.

In 1955, the southern author Flannery O’Connor said of herself, “Everybody who has read Wise Blood thinks I’m a hillbilly nihilist, whereas . . . I’m a hillbilly Thomist.” She said that her fiction was concerned with the ways grace is at work among people who do not have access to the sacraments. The Thomist (one who follows the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas) believes that the invisible grace of God can be at work in visible things, just as the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, in the person of Christ. https://www.hillbillythomists.com/about

They’ve also been writing songs. In 2021, they released their second studio album, Living for the Other Side, released on the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas (the original Thomist). A year later, they published a third record, Holy Ghost Power (released July 7, 2022).

Proceeds from album sales, donations, and merchandise sales support the formation of friars at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., where the Hillbilly Thomists first came together.

Fr. Justin Bolger, O.P., was born in Cobleskille, NY and raised in Baltimore and Frederick, MD. He hails from a family of seven. He graduated from the University of Baltimore in ’03 and went on to make music with his sister Maggie. They signed with RCA/Victor records, lived in L.A. and Nashville, and toured the country playing their original music. Fr. Justin worked as director of liturgical music at Mt. St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, MD and earned a masters in philosophy there. In ’12 he entered the Dominican Province of St. Joseph. He was ordained to the priesthood in ’20 and currently serves as Chaplain and Director of Campus Ministry at Providence College, which was founded and still run by the Dominican friars. He continues to make music within the Order as a member of the bluegrass & folk band of friars, The Hillbilly Thomists.

Solesmes Method vs Semiology: What's the difference?
11:14
Gregorian Chant Academy
61 Views · 5 months ago

Ever heard of or wonder what the difference is between the "Solesmes Method" and "Semiology"? In this episode I give a brief explanation of both and demonstrate their differences in practice with the Introit "Statuit ei" from the mass of a Confessor Bishop. Contrary to what many people think, Dom Mocquereau (developer of the Solesmes Method) also taught Semiology in the very book he wrote to teach his Solesmes Method, "Le Nombre Musical Gregorien." The main difference between Mocquereau and Cardine is, to put it simply, that Cardine completely disregarded the theory of the ictus, and they had a few differences in understanding of the Semiology.

Resp. Collegerunt | Palm Sunday
6:09
Gregorian Chant Academy
49 Views · 5 months ago

The Responsory "Collegerunt" is a Gregorian Chant sung during the Palm Sunday liturgy. The text is taken from the Gospel of St John, chapter 11, where it speaks of the hatred the Pharisees had against Jesus Christ and their conspiracy to put him to death after He had worked so much good and so many miracles. We can see ourselves in this as we conspire to put Him to death every time we consent to sin. The earliest musical sources for this chant are the MS of Einsiedeln 121 from Switzerland from the early 11th century (pictured at beginning of recording) and the MS of Laon 239 from the beginning of the 10th century. For the purpose of education and demonstration, the rhythmical style of singing in this recording is according to the principles of Semiology (i.e. ancient manuscripts), as opposed to the "Solesmes Method" of Dom Mocquereau.

English Translation:
℟. The chief priest and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said: What are we doing, for this man performs many miracles? If we let him go on thus, all will believe in him. * and the Romans will come and take away our place and nation.
℣. But one of them, named Caiphas, being the high priest that year, said to them: It is expedient for you all that one man should die for the people, and not the whole nation perish. Therefore from that day they devised to kill him, saying:

Lyrics (English translation):

1. May the hosts of heavenly spirits praise thee, O Joseph; may all the choirs of Christendom resound with thy name, thou who, renowned for merits, was united in chaste wedlock to the glorious Virgin.
2. “When thou didst wonder at thy bride grown great with her august Child, sorely wert thou afflicted with doubt; but an Angel taught thee that the Child was conceived by a breath of the Holy Spirit.”
3. “Thou dost embrace the new-born Lord, and dost follow Him, a fugitive, to remote parts of Egypt: lost in Jerusalem, thou dost seek and find Him, thus mingling joys with tears.”
4. “A pious death doth make other men happy after death, and glory awaiteth those who have merited a palm: but thou still living, in a wonderous manner more fortunate, dost, like the Blessed, enjoy thy God.”
5. Grant us, great Trinity, for Joseph’s holy sake, In highest bliss and love, above the stars to reign,
That we in joy with him may praise our loving God, And sing our glad eternal strain. Amen.

English Translation:

May the crowd of all the faithful rejoice for the glory of the blessed loving father. let the throngs of monks be glad, especially those who celebrate the fellowship of the saints and rejoice in the heavens.

My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was it the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

English Translation:

Benedict, precious jewel of the King of Heaven,
Model for the just and way for monks,
Call us forth
From this troubled world.

Spurning what was base,
you set your heart on the stars.
You made heirs of your parents,
For you, God's perfect vessel,
Were fit to repair a shattered one.

Great among a small company of hermits
You overcame your youthfulness
and excelled in your labor
As you fervently undertook
The narrow beginnings of the strict life.

When a youth was buried
in the rubble of a collapsing wall,
He was raised up as soon as you prayed;
With your prayer you restored
Sense to his flesh and health to his body.

You saw your sister's soul, unknown to sin,
Attain the very heights
Of starry heaven
In the form of a gentle dove.

After this marvel you in turn
Sought starry heights, having mastered this life;
Your cloak shone forth
A flaming path charged with light.

Glory to the Father, to the Only Begotten,
And to you, loving Spirit,
Always their equal,
One God for all ages. Amen.

Introit - Statuit ei Dominus | Gregorian Chant
2:46
Gregorian Chant Academy
27 Views · 5 months ago

⁣This Gregorian Chant is the Introit for the Mass of a Confessor Bishop, from the Common of the Saints. The Catholic Church is in desperate need of holy priests and bishops (and popes) who will stand up and FIGHT heresy, preach TRUE doctrine, and feed their sheep and lambs with the life giving Sacraments of the Church at any cost to themselves. May all our holy bishop and pope saints of the past pray for us!
For an exposition/analysis on how this chant (or any chant) can be a "musical sermon," check this video: https://youtu.be/E25hPwhEy_g
Lord, grant us priests. Lord grant us holy priests. Lord grant us many holy priests and religious vocations!

⁣English translation:
The Lord made unto him a covenant of peace,
and made him a prince,
that the dignity of the priesthood should be to him forever.
⁣Verse: Remember, David, O Lord; and all his meekness.

Communion - Psallite Domino | Feast of the Ascension
2:13
Gregorian Chant Academy
23 Views · 5 months ago

⁣"Psallite Domino" is the Gregorian Chant communion antiphon for the feast of the Ascension of our Lord, Jesus Christ, into heaven. This recording is sung mostly according to the Solesmes Method, but with some Semiological interpretation as well. The melody on "ad Orientem," is a reflection of our Lord's rising up "to the East." This melody on "ad Orientem" also has its counterpart in the communion "Ecce Virgo" from the 4th Sunday of Advent where this same melody appears on the word "Emmanuel," meaning "God is with us." So we see a theological/catechetical musical picture here: this melody first appears at the time when Christ descends from heaven to earth, taking on the flesh of our human nature, coming to us; and again as Christ leaves the earth, ascending to heaven, taking our human nature, and us, with him. And yet He is still "with us" as He told us He would not leave us orphans, but send us His Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, Love, and Consolation.

O Ignis Spiritus - St Hildegard of Bingen
6:19
Gregorian Chant Academy
46 Views · 5 months ago

⁣O Ignis Spiritus Paracliti is a sequence (sung after the Gradual and Alleluia, before the Gospel) chant to the Holy Ghost composed by St Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century German mystic, Benedictine abbess, and Doctor of the Church. Since she was German, I have adopted the germanic pronunciation of Latin for this song, rather than the Italian. May the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth, Love and Consolation, fill all of your hearts with His love, and renew the face of the earth.

English translation:
1a. O fire of the Spirit Comforter,
the life of every life created:
Holy art Thou, giving life to every form.

1b. Holy art Thou, anointing the perilously
fractured/broken [souls]. Holy art Thou, cleansing
the festering wounds.

2a. O breath of holiness,
O fire of love,
O taste so sweet within the breast,
and an infusion of the hearts in the good odor of virtue.

2b. O purest fountain,
in which we consider
that God seeks out and collects
the estranged and the lost.

3a. O breastplate of life,
and hope that binds every member,
O belt of honor: save the blessed.

3b. Guard those imprisoned by the enemy,
and loose the bonds of those
whom the Divine power wills to save.

4a. O strongest path that penetrates all things:
in the highest, upon the earth,
and in the every abyss—
Thou dost bind and gather all together.

4b. From Thee the clouds flow, the wind takes flight,
the stones have their moisture,
the streams of water flow,
and the earth exudes viridity.

5a. Thou, also, dost teach the learned,
by the inspiration of Wisdom,
making them joyful.

5b. Therefore, be Thou praised, Who art the sound of praise,
the joy of life, the hope and most powerful honor,
giving the gift of light.

Ave Verum - 14th century harmony

Gregorian Chant Academy
40 Views · 5 months ago

⁣This Ave Verum, with its harmony and rhythm, comes from a 14th century codex. The text is sometimes attributed to Pope Innocent (III, IV, V, or VI) and has ever since been a favorite of Eucharist adoration. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I adore Thee in the most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.

English translation:
Hail, true Body, born
of the Virgin Mary,
having truly suffered, immolated
on the cross for mankind,
from whose pierced side
water and blood flowed:
Be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet]
in the trial of death!

O sweet Jesus, O holy Jesus,
O Jesus, son of Mary,
[have mercy on me]. Amen.

Latin Text:
Ave verum corpus, natum
de Maria Virgine,
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine
cuius latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine:
esto nobis prægustatum
in mortis examine.

O Iesu dulcis, O Iesu pie,
O Iesu, fili Mariae.
[Miserere mei.] Amen.
