Information from CD.
The songs on this CD are taken from the daily prayers of the Birgittine sisters. The songs are known as Cantus Sororum (Songs of the Sisters). Birgitta wanted the sisters in her order to praise God using a liturgy created especially for them.
Seven of the songs featured on this CD are great responsories, which are the most meditative within the whole cycle. They are sung in the early hours of the morning. The antiphons are like little beads, which are sung together with the psalms. There are also two hymns on the CD.
The CD is recorded in the Naantali Church, Finland, the very same place in which they were sung by the Armonlaakso (Valley of Grace) in the 15th century. (From Proprius website).
