AllMusic Review by

Gregorian Chant Christmas features deeply resonant monks' vocals in combination with rich, cathedral-like overtones that reach deep into the soul and stir up powerful perceptions of the Creator. The CD booklet coasts rare English translations of the Latin verses. Gregorian Chant Christmas by Ambrose Karels contains over 70 minutes of traditional chants used for the Divine Office and Eucharistic Liturgies in the Western Catholic tradition. Some of these chants have been sung annually since as early as the fifth century.
