Item Description...
Overview
In this beautifully written discussion of chant as collective, contemplative prayer, the author reminds us that the chant's "discipline of listening, simplicity, and silence can help us all, whether choir or congregation, clear our minds of the noisy thoughts and emotions of the day. According to centuries-old monastic teaching, the mind thus cleared is . . . more sensitive to the inner meanings of scripture and to God's directions for our lives." Also includes extensive material for the use of chant within the parish.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Intelligent and profound.  Dec 23, 2001
There is so much more in this book than Gregorian chant (though it evokes in the reader an eager wish to find a group studying the singing of it). Dr. Herbert's sensitive approach touches the texts upon which the chant is based in such a way that they stir into life and open their practical meaning for those who grope their way toward the "practice of the Presence of God." One can only respond with deep gratitude.
 
Entirely orthodox, and true to boot  Feb 18, 2000
If we claim that the Bible is the Word of God, alive and active and with the power to "read us", just exactly how does that work? What does that insight look and feel and taste and sound like? The early Church Fathers (from Augustine in the 300s to Bernard in the 1200s) knew, and wrote extensively about their experience. Their experience can be ours as well: God never changes, and humans do slowly (if at all.)

Dr. Herbert, through years of participation in chant-based liturgies, discovered the roots of that form of Christian worship in the writings of the Church Fathers. Their method of scripture study is contemplative in nature, communal in form, comprehensive in biblical depth, and always has Jesus as its center. Just because Dr. Herbert speaks reverentially of Wisdom in no way indicates Gnosticism -- let's not let the dread of heresy deny us our legitimate access to God's promise of enlightenment and guidance into His Truth.

This book shows an ancient and very deep approach to God and Dr. Herbert deserves our gratitude for his patient, clear, and humble explanation of it, and for his musical erudition and guidance.

 
Gnosticism attacks another Tradition  Feb 1, 2000
As the liturgical experimentations of the 60's begin to fade away, it should be of no surprise that the New Age element within the Church has targeted traditional forms as vehicles for their Gnosticism. With phrases like, "A sacred text is one which is capable of evolving into higher forms within the mind", "...the meaning [of scripture]...is symbolic and multiple - there is wide latitude and freedom in understanding them", and "powerful Spirit of Wisdom...as female", it should be apparent where the author is deriving his inspiration. St. Irenaeus, way back in the beginning, warned of the Gnostic's ability to reinterpret everything in terms of itself. This is just another one, although some of the musical bits are worthwhile.
