Beginning before sunrise and continuing deep into the night, ritual chanting of the Divine Office was a hallmark of a medieval cleric's life. The undulating, meditative sound of Gregorian plainsong echoed hourly through the cloisters of an 11th century monastery. From Compline hymns sung in the darkness to the Salve Regina sung by religious warriors on the battlefield, the singers of Seraphic Fire intone the otherworldly chants to the Virgin Mary that were part of everyday medieval life.
