Beauitful and Restful

Excellent forrestful prayer at night.

By: Gene - Ouster Bay, NY

It is very enjoyable.

I *love* this CD. The Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist sing beautifully and without music, pitch pipes or any other noticable aids. Compline is my favorite office of the day, and this CD brought me new appreciation for chanting. They stick right to the Book of Common Prayer. The sound could be better. There is a big drop in volume when one person is singing versus the group together. Aside from that, it is very enjoyable.
