Neumz is the only complete recording of all Gregorian Chant in the world. More than 7000 hours in an App for iOS and Android.
From a hill that rises above the banks of the Durance River, this community of forty-five nuns at the Abbey of Jouques lives withdrawn from the bustle of modern life, in communion with nature and in quiet contemplation. Their life is regularized by the rhythm of ora et labora, prayer and work, the centerpiece of the Rule of St. Benedict. Their days are divided by the regular Offices of the Liturgy of the Hours and include daily Mass.
Their years follow the Earth’s seasons and the Liturgical Calendar, a cycle of feast days that celebrate the Church’s Saints through which they meditate on Holy Scripture. The complete project covers three years of recordings. It presents the entire Gregorian repertoire, including thousands of pieces (the equivalent of more than 7000 CDs).
The Chants are recorded in high resolution by engineers of Odradek Records, a non-profit, democratic, artist-led label based in the United States with a studio in Italy.
