Researched, programmed, performed and recorded by the monks of Pluscarden Abbey and produced by Ffin Records, this album has been crafted to share the rich variety of music used in Ordinary Time.

The album falls into four main sections - firstly joyous and dynamic, then meditative and slow, bold and confident, and finally adoring and glorifying, with a brief closing section dedicated to Mary the mother of Jesus. 

CD includes a 32-page printed booklet of detailed notes written by the monks of Pluscarden about the interpretation, context and history of each track, together with the complete Latin texts and English translations for all the music on the disc.

Download the booklet as a free PDF.

Released 12th October 2018, and available on iTunesAmazon digital and direct from Ffin Records.

This is a major CD, presenting twenty-nine chants intrinsic to the annual liturgical cycle that have not often been recorded. The singing, united, flowing and deeply musical, does them full justice… through the beauty of the chants presented, and the ease and resonance of the singing in the fine acoustic, this CD lifts us to another world. — Dame Margaret Truran

A rich mine... the tropped Kyrie 2 with its elegant rhythm and neat diction, the Gradual Laetatus and Alleluia Confitemini, examples of fine singing, as well as the beautifully expressive In voluntate and Multitudo… a freshness and lightness about it which those of us familiar with the Pluscarden community immediately recognize as the familiar mark of its choir. — Sr. Bernadette Byrne of St. Cecilia's Abbey Ryde
