Notes

Biscantorat was recorded in the Autumn of 2003 in the Benedictine Monastry at Glenstal Abbey, Murroe, Co. Limerick, Ireland. Joining the community of monks in this unique recording are Marie-Bernadette O'Connor (= Sinéad O'Connor), John O'Donohue and Nóirín Ní Riain.

Biscantorat is coined from an ancient proverb, that to sing is to pray twice - qui cantat, bis orat.
Here you experience sounds, voices, Latin chants, Irish songs, English Hymns, tracing the course of the liturgical year from Advent through Pentecost. Voices singing alone, voices singing together, voices in harmony.

Track 1,8,13,20 are spoken words
Track 3,4,7,10,12 contain Marie-Bernadette O'Connor (a.k.a. Sinéad O'Connor) vocals
