New CD recording!

Our new CD has finally been delivered - they look really great. We are so proud to have produced something so professional.

The disk traces in Gregorian Chant, the arrival of St Augustine in Kent and the re-establishment of Christianity in England from AD 596.

We recorded it in Pugin's masterpiece Abbey church in Ramsgate, now a shrine to St Augustine. The disk brings together the traditional chant for the Mass of St Augustine, the chant said to have been sung upon his arrival in England and other music dedicated to this occasion.

The splendid acoustics of the church make for a relaxing and spiritual disk that carefully recreates the peace and tranquility of Pugin's church in its seaside location.

The official launch is on Monday 25th May at 12pm, the feast of St Augustine, at the Shrine of St Augustine in Ramsgate. In the meantime you can purchase your advance copy now by following this link:
