Item Description...
Scholar, priest and monk, Dom Gueranger began his work in the aftermath of the French revolution, when religious life was effectively abolished in all of Europe. Aiming to restore all aspects of monastic life, the preservation of Gregorian chant - the sung liturgy of the church - was an essential part of Dom Gueranger's goal. He re-founded the Abbey of St. Peter in Solesmes, France, which flourishes today as the worldwide center of Gregorian chant spirituality and performance. For all who have been attracted to the beauty and deep spirituality of Gregorian chant, Solesmes and Dom Gueranger is an inspiration.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Although the original 1974 French edition of this excellent biography by Dom Louis Soltner is also (and quite rarely) available here upon the this site as Solesmes & [i.e. et] dom Gueranger, 1805-1875, the exclusively English speaker may rejoice with this version as well, translated by Jospeh O'Connor (the former postulant of Solesmes?) and published sturdily by the great Paraclete Press of Brewster, MA, from whom several of the Solesmes recordings of Gregorian chant are also available here upon the this site.

This book therefore covers the full life of Dom Prosper Gueranger, and the profound political and social transformations of his time, which he confronted and crossed in re-establishing the full liturgical monastic life and the forgotten fullness of Gregorian Chant within an abandoned ancient Abbey at Solesmes. This book thus is a true tale of heroism and fortitude for our Church, and represents the roots of a revival of our most ancient Liturgy which swept the Second Vatican Council a hundred years later giving birth for instance to the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy: The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. Sacrosanctum Concilium (Vatican II in Plain English). A less scholarly and far less recommendable work which imposes its foregone conclusions on the true history beginning with Dom Gueranger may be The Liturgical Movement: From Dom Gueranger to Annibale Bugnini, Or, the Trojan Horse in the City of God whose only truth is the importance of Dom Gueranger in the vanguard of Liturgical Restoration.

Surprisingly and generously available here in its several volumes are the once standard texts written by Dom Gueranger on the Liturgical Year. Anyone interested in the earlier celebration of our Liturgical Year may find their study an edifying and informative commentary and meditation of our Liturgical Seasons, including Advent the Liturgical Year, Christmas - Book 2 (The Liturgical Year, Vol. 3), Lent the Liturgical Year, The Liturgical Year (Vol. 7) Paschal Time, Book I, etc.

Meanwhile this present biography, written ably by a monk of Solesmes, DOm Soltner, and thus written with great authority and thoughtfulness and gratitude from the living communal memory and primary sources, introduces us more fully to the significance for our Church and for our Faith of this great and courageous monk of Saint Benedict.

Incidentally, I myself, greatly baffled and unappreciative, received my monastic habit during the Triduum Celebration of the centenary of the death of Dom Gueranger, the centenary for which this biography was published by his Abbey.

Read this and enter the fullness of our Faith.
