Schola Musica to release "The Beatles Gregorian Songbook" (10/5/01)
Schola Musica releases
"The Beatles' Gregorian Songbook" on Oct. 27. From the description on the album's web site: "This album is truly respectful of the original meaning and intention behind each of these songs as I have selected only songs with a particular spiritual meaning and a philosophical purport. The transition was natural, if not obvious. The melodies reveal how beautiful and simple they really are, perfectly in tune with the ancient tradition of Gregorian chant. Listening to this recording, I like to think these songs could have naturally been sung by real monks living in a monastery somewhere in a small 12th Century abbey, 30 miles North of Liverpool..."
