    Can't get enough Gregorian Chant. It's always so cleansing and uplifting no matter how I may feel or what might be on my mind; it always takes the cake and runs with it.

    Have you listened to Ensemble Organum? I think they're just about the tops in the genre. If you haven't, check out some of their works:

    Amazing works! If I only had parallel lives to listen to all the great music! Well, maybe I do...

    In my opinion, the work, performance, and recording are all excellent. Here's what some others think:

    Gramophone: “a performance of striking composure, lustre and palpable dedication. Not only do the Bergen Philharmonic respond with notable poise and eagerness (solo contributions are of the highest quality throughout), Davis conducts with unobtrusive authority as well as a sure hand on the structural tiller, uncovering a wealth of telling harmonic and textural detail along the way.”
    classicalsource.com

    classicalsource.com: “Davis, vastly experienced as a conductor of this composer, is every bit as idiomatic as the score’s dedicatee and finds the Bergen Philharmonic in virtuoso and sensitive form.”

    Presto Classical: “While the loss of Hickox was, and remains, a huge loss to fans of this music, there could be no finer conductor to receive the baton than Andrew Davis...Davis seems to avoid some of Handley’s showmanship – giving less of a punch to some of the more impassioned outbursts – but conversely there’s a clarity here in some of the more intricate contrapuntal passages that Handley sometimes fails to match.”

    Music Web International: “A mandatory purchase for all Vaughan Williams enthusiasts.”

    The Sunday Times: “The versatile Bergen band clearly revel in the expansive, unmistakably “English” tunes and the sometimes exotic orchestration...Davis today has no peers in this repertoire, which, added to Chandos’s brilliantly “present” sound engineering, makes this a self-recommending issue.”
    Classical Music

    Classical Music: “a searing performance of the enigmatic ninth symphony…Even better, though, is Job: a tremendous, Blake-inspired score whose challenges are triumphantly met here. It is one of Vaughan Williams’ most dramatic works and the sheer power of the Bergen forces (that organ!) contrast perfectly with sections of great textual beauty. Superb SACD sound

    I basically copied and pasted from Presto Classical, a great site that a member here turned me onto.
