“Nova et vetera.” Sanjuanist Gregorian chant

On the 450th anniversary of the reformation of the male branch of the Teresian Carmel (1568-2018), young Discalced Carmelites – postulants and religious of the two Polish provinces of the Order (Krakow and Warsaw) – met in Czerna to prepare a disc with the Mass and Vespers of Saint John of the Cross as well as other hymns and antiphons about the Saint. The album will be ready next fall.

From an artistic point of view, the responsibility to carry out the initiative was taken on by specialists Ewa and Robert Domagała Rekiel, directed by Father Mariusz Wójtowicz ocd, already known for his previous work (the disc, “Sancta Mater Teresia”: https://soundcloud.com/dumanie/sancta-mater-teresia-chora-y; polyphonic chants “Solo Dios basta” (“God alone suffices”): https://soundcloud.com/dumanie/bog-sam-wystarcza-vol-1 or “Twoje Niebo” https://soundcloud.com/dumanie/twoje-niebo-dzien-po-dniu).
