AllMusic Review by

On their 2012 studio album Epic Chants, producer Frank Peterson's group Gregorian apply their trademark "pop song as Gregorian chant" approach to a number of well-known movie themes: the album includes covers of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds" (from Taylor Hackford's movie by the same name), Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" (from James Cameron's Titanic), Howard Shore's "Into the West" (from Peter Jackson's The Return of the King), Vangelis' "Conquest of Paradise" (from Ridley Scott's 1492), and more. There's also one original composition by Peterson, the opening track "World Without End." Epic Chants charted at number nine in Germany and number 31 in Switzerland.
