O Day of Resurrection!
Liturgy of the Hours for Sunday
The Camaldolese Monks album released by Jade Music.
O DAY OF RESURRECTION is a 27-track recording of the monks’ beautiful chants of the Liturgy of the Hours, a community prayer, with songs and readings at specified times during the day and night, according to the rule of St. Benedict. In addition to the Mass, the principal “hours” or “offices” are Vespers, Vigils and Lauds.
The album was recorded in the chapel of the New Camaldoli Hermitage, and is slated to be released Nov. 4 by Jade Music via Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA), the specialty arm of Warner Music Group.
Camaldolese Benedictine monks trace their heritage to the 6th century monastic traditions of Saint Benedict, as further defined in the 11th century by their founder, Saint Romuald. The three elements of the Camaldolese charism are solitude for personal prayer and meditation; communal prayer and work within the monastery; and Contemplative outreach.
In 1958, the Camaldolese established New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur. The monks’ labors include hospitality, retreats, running a book store, writing, and original art, pottery and music. Many of the monks were called to monastic life as a second career. Former lay careers of community members include college and high school teaching, performing arts, engineering, clinical psychology, chemistry, construction and the military. Former religious careers include service as diocesan priests and as members of Benedictine, Franciscan, Salesian, Saint John of God and Redemptorist orders.
