Recording a gregorian choir, has been a long awaited dream coming true since I started developing sample libraries in 2006.
What could look like an easy task is totally the opposite. Finding a true gregorian choir is something hard to accomplish since there are not so many of them and just a few ones are really good. Gregorian music has its own nuances, it is not just another choir, you cannot get the real feeling with a regular choir pretending to sing Gregorian. If you don't capture all those details, if you don't really love Gregorian music, you won't be able to get that true sound. That sound which is so special, that touches your soul and transports you to the middle ages, to those lost abbeys covered by mist, the sound of the ancient bells pealing to pray.
All those lost secrets, all that magic are contained in this library.
I decided to record Cantus in a dry enviroment for many reasons: Gregorian music and reverb are good partners, so I didn't want to tie the recordings to any special room sound. There are so many impressive reverbs out there, that I have chosen that way, to allow you complete control, to adjust the reverb sound to your own taste.
The recording was carefully done with 8 Neumann microphones and mixed to get that true monks sound. I wanted you to feel the cold breath from the mouth of the monks singing in those cold monasteries, just in your face while playing the library. This library is a dream for me, and like in every library I make, there is a lot of love in it. I hope you feel the same goosebumps I feel.
Enjoy your journey to those mysterious ancient days of the lost abbeys.
