Calm music for mediation
Timeless sounds from an earlier age. Men's voices sing a selection of ancient plainchant to soothe the distractions of the modern age. Single lines of melody build up an almost hypnotic effect which calms and quiets the busy mind. The music is taken from some of the earliest-known settings of words used in the early centuries of the church.
