This anthology is of great interest as the contents are in liturgical order, following the principal seasons (Christmas, Holy Week, Easter, and Marian Feasts) representing the entire liturgical year. The beautiful Gregorian chant illuminates the liturgical texts, inviting the listener to contemplate the life of Christ and the foundation of the church.
