This special double-album release features two of the best-loved recordings from the Chants of the World Series by Robert Gass and On Wings of Song.
Alleluia is a heavenly arrangement of this uplifting chant of praise and celebration, set to the compelling music of one of the world’s best loved melodies, Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Opening with the simple and pure strains of the women’s voices of On Wings of Song, the chant slowly builds in a passionate crescendo, then ebbs gently to a close that calms the mind and elevates the spirit. “Nourishes as only faith and beauty can.” – National Catholic Reporter
Kyrie is a beautiful and mystical rendering of the opening words of the Catholic Mass – “Kyrie Eleison – Lord have mercy.” Blending the bright, healing voices of On Wings of Song in a soul-stirring composition of chorus, tabla, cymbals, organ and acoustic guitar, the hypnotic, soothing rhythms of this recording have been used by teachers and healers around the world for group meditation and sacred dance. ” . . . acoustic guitar, tabla, congas and cymbals lend it a lovely structure, rich and full of longing. The beautiful swelling voices, repetitive rhythms and melody will leave you cleansed and filled with peace.” -Heartsong Review
