Product Details
Located along the Pacific Coast Highway at Big Sur, California, the New Camaldoli Hermitage is a community of Roman Catholic monks whose life is dedicated to contemplation and prayer. They are a worshiping community, celebrating the Liturgy of the Hours and the Holy Eucharist. "O DAY OF RESURRECTION is a slice of our monastic day, the sung prayers from the hours just before dawn until just before going back to rest," says Fr. Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam. "The elegant simplicity of the music and the accessibility and familiarity of the monks' singing voices are comforting and yet somehow challenging, too. This music serves as an invitation into a deeper relationship with the inspired Word of God as carried in song in the perfect acoustic of the chapel."

The CD is a 27-track recording of the monks' beautiful chants of the Liturgy of the Hours, a community prayer, with songs and readings at specified times during the day and night, according to the rule of St. Benedict. In addition to the Mass, the principle "hours" or "offices" are Vespers, Vigils and Lauds. The album was recorded in the chapel of the New Camaldoli Hermitage.
