September 15, 2009. Cheshire, CT.  The Legionaries of Christ at the novitiate and center for humanities in Cheshire, CT, have recorded another CD of songs, this time in honor of Christ in the Eucharist. (The first CD of Christmas songs, “Tidings of Joy,” is also available from Circle Press.)

Bread of Angels: Hymns to Christ in the Eucharist,” on sale for $15 through Circle Press, is a practical way for the Legionary brothers to promote the Eucharist during the Year for Priests while also raising funds to support the formation of future priests.

About half of the 27 tracks are Gregorian chant hymns; the others are polyphonic compositions in various languages. Songs in Latin include the famous “Sicut Cervus” by Palestrina and “Ave Verum” by Mozart, among others. There are four hymns in English, two in Italian, and one in Spanish. English translations for all songs are provided in the accompanying CD booklet.

Italian priest and composer Monsignor Marco Frisina (director of the Liturgical Office of the Vicariate in Rome and director of the Pontificia Cappella Musicale Lateranense), also granted his permission for the brothers to reproduce

The brothers whose voices you will hear on the CD are 24 Legionaries from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, and Hungary. The choir director, Fr Andreas Kramarz, is from Germany. Br Marcello Bressan, from Argentina, did the graphic design of the CD cover and booklet.

“With this CD,” says Fr Andreas Kramarz, “one can participate in the vocal praise of God in our Legionary community in Cheshire.” He also notes that the CD ends with the same exposition and benediction hymns that are sung every Thursday to open and close the weekly Eucharistic Hour.
