ORIENS EX ALTO was recorded on the Solemnity of the Epiphany during the Silence and Song Retreat, Jan 6th, 2017. All the tracks were recorded live and were sung in the liturgy by some or all of the 42 retreatants. The Retreat is organised annually by the Australian Sacred Music Association. This album will be sold as a fundraiser for the foundation of Notre Dame Priory, Hobart.


Double CD with 34 chants from the Solemnity of the Epiphany

I would like to thank the Australian Sacred Music Association as well as all those who took part in this recording which has been made in an effort to support the foundation of Notre Dame Priory in the archdiocese of Hobart. A witness to their love for the sacred music of the Church, a passion shared by monks, this recording will, I hope, help promote love for the sacred liturgy, and open perspectives as to the relevance of monastic life in Australia today. May it meet with much success. – Fr Pius Mary Noonan, OSB – Notre Dame Priory
