AllMusic Review by

Released in 2005, Masters of Chant: Chapters I-III gathers the studio albums recorded by classical crossover act Gregorian from 1999-2002. Fronted by Frank Peterson and featuring 12 session and choir singers, as well as guest vocals from soprano Sarah Brightman, the three discs showcase their unique Gregorian chant interpretations of modern pop and rock songs. Produced by Carsten Heusmann, Jan-Eric Kohrs, and Michael Soltau, the Enigma-inspired project includes cover versions of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," and Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" alongside several original compositions ("Moment of Peace," "Before the Dawn").
