Chant on the Radio

From an email.

Every Sunday morning Una Voce France delivers a broadcast which lasts about one hour. Its title is “Chant Gregorien, prière chantée”. It is exclusively dedicated to the Gregorian chant of the Mass of the day (as well as that of approaching Feast days) and the Kyriale, Credo… A short commentary explains the origin of these Gregorian chants and their meaning. The broadcast is also available on the preceding Monday on the Una Voce website as well as on various radio stations. A real liturgical training of the “Church’s sung prayer” is thus taking place on a regular basis.

Patrick Banken, President. Una Voce France.
