Time Travel

Gregorian Chant first came to exist in the 9th and 10th centuries in Western and Central Europe, and were named after the Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604 A.D). These chants are performed A Capella, without musical support, and sung in Latin. Latin had been the language in use throughout the Roman Catholic Church almost since its foundation. When the Second Vatican Council introduced the use of native language in the Mass instead of Latin, in 1962, the tradition of Gregorian Chants started to decline. Today, Gregorian Chants are rarely sung during offices anymore, but can be heard in some retired monasteries. The sound created by the Monks performing Gregorian Chants, transports you to a time long gone.

These chants had such long tradition — more than ten centuries — because they probably touch deep in one's very soul and spirituality, and brought a marvellous sense of inner peace. Music knows neither area, time nor language. If you wish, allow yourself to escape your busy life for a while, and re-connect with yourself. Close your eyes, and let the ancient sounds of Monks carry you away.

The sound quality on this generator is amazing. You will be able to hear the chanting lightly echoing off the pillars and rafters. Two recording locations have been used, one close to the singers, and one at the rear of the church, at a great distance from the choir. Those recordings have been made available by means of separate sliders, allowing you to adjust the reverberation level to your liking. Enjoy!

  Great work, incredible! Thanks for sharing, very interesting and clearly programmed and explained.

  I love Gregorian chants and creating my own was *mwah* fantastic!

  This works best combined with Aeternitas and Anamnesis! The ambiance is surreal and out of this world. It gives you the vibes of the spiritual realm enveloping you in an immersive sound that uplifts the spirit within you, drawing you closer to the One, the True and eternal Being that created the sounds and nature to live...

  This is a beautiful piece of work! Thank you!

  I've been reading some books on the Crusades lately... among other things around that time. This fits in perfectly and I feel so relaxed when reading. Thanks for this wonderful sound generator. This enough was worth the donation.

  I really do feel transported, I close my eyes and I am there. Time to be.

  I own a lot of Gregorian chant albums and this sounds just like my albums. Chants are so amazing. I love listening to this. The addition of the bells gets my imagination going.

  This is so nice, I'm so glad this website exists! Every time I come back, I do something slightly different. This sounds beautiful!

  The echoing is so cool and realistic! I love it!!

  This is the coolest thing ever! I love gregorian music, it makes me feel so at peace and calm, thank you so much for creating this generator! <3

  Honestly, the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. Makes me feel like I've traveled back in time. I'm honestly a little weepy.

  A mystagogic sound that goes straight through your soul. Candlelight, heavy eyelids, a sense of peace and belonging. Outside the chapel the air is cool and the sky full of stars.

  I love listening to this imagining I'm on some windswept coast somewhere with the sound of a far off church song. A blessing, pardon the pun.

  The Gregiorian Chant is especially charming. I love that to slow my thoughts down. Thanks for great work.

  Sublime. Love this.

  A musical form that has lasted longer than most of western civilization. Simple. Human. Peace. This is the one that finally got me too the donation page. Thank you.

  I appreciate you are doing your part to spread this prayer. But we monks and nuns are not retired!!! And in my community, we have never broken with the Gregorian chant The office is sung 7 times a day as well as daily Mass here. It is very real and at the core of Benedictine life.

  Gregorian chants at the tips of your fingers? The future is now.

  Gregorian chant was my favorite listening through college, although back then it was only albums and cassette tapes. Your generator is awesome! I now work at a university's digital scholarship center and shared this with our music faculty for potential use in their classes. Many thanks!

  Absolutely wonderful.

  This is so peaceful to listen to, thank you to whoever created this.

  I love to imagine myself camping near the coast after a day's backpacking, listening to the storm lashing my tent and the ghostly echoes of chant drifting in on the wind from that deserted abbey on the island just off the coast. I combine just the reverbs with Rain on a Tent, Unreal Wind, Thunder and Irish Coast.

  So heavenly! I love it.

  Very nice. I like it very much. Inspiring.

  This is truly beautiful.

  I'm currently pairing the "Echoing Monks" preset with Orchestron's "Calming Tension", and I love it. Between the beauty of these two sound generators and the soft lamplight I've put in my office, I feel more at peace coming into work, like I truly belong in the here and now.

  Beautifully sung! If you double it with the Irish coast, you feel like you are in one of the ancient Irish monasteries! In answer to another listener's question, the "Song" is the Veni Creator Spiritus verses 1, 2, and 6. The "Canon" is a series of lines from the Pange Lingua Gloriosi by the Dominican St. Thomas Aquinas.

  Since I was a young boy I have always loved to listen to Gregorian chant. When we had a High Mass, they used Gregorian chant. I know it is Latin which I do not know but it is so peaceful and it makes me feel like I am connecting to God.

  This is awesome! Even though I am not Catholic I love soul music, and this cool website has everything in it! I recommend it!

  Takes me to a different world... need to know the meaning of this song, please.

  Very beautiful. We still sing Gregorian chants in our church choir.

  Love it all. When I was not even a teenager in the '60s, I played Gregorian Chants on my old LPs to find solace & help me fall asleep. I found myself inspired to breathe deeply & slowly with the music; so I learned a way to calm myself way long before I learned yoga & meditation. I'm a LMT & I hate "White Noise" machines. Love melodic/binaural music. THIS is gorgeous. Love the HUM or ECHOES sliders.

  The prayers of ancient, long-dead monks can sometimes still be heard in the ruined gothic churches of Kamarg...

  Wow, this was so magical! I loved the reverb, it made for such an interesting, etheral effect.

  I love This! Especially with the Temple Bells, it a mixes together into this super eerie chant.

  This generator really surprised me! It's also really accurate, I use it for relaxing and for studying.

  This one I find the most relaxing.

  Paired with guitar mashup, this sounds like something out of the death note soundtrack! Brilliant.

  This is definitely my favourite generator on the whole site. Thank you for creating such an amazing generator!!

  I love this combined with Electric Guitar Mashup!

  I have always been using Buddhistic and Islamic chants for meditation on this website. But now I have discovered that Catholic chants have the same meditational and salubrious effect on the soul as long as you do not understand them. I come from a small Catholic village and this soundscape really helped me refind the beauty in my own religion. MK from Germany.

  This generator, like nothing else I am aware of, fills a room with magic, like a censer infusing a space with incense. It creates a little capsule of timelessness within four walls. To a sensitive, intelligent human trying to keep a sane perspective in the chaotic madness that is the United States today, this site is quite literally a godsend.

  Combine with this with Irish Coast; wind, shore noise, and rain channels active. You can start to hear them. The ancient Celtic monks of old, chanting above the crash of the sea against the rocks. In the water below your cliff, you see them. Standing in a line, waist deep in the billows, they chant against the darkness surrounding the island; each with arms outstretched in the shape of a cross.

  Pair this with the Bass Flute from Folk Tradition. Perfect underlying hum for the voices gently chanting over the top, very relaxing.

  This works great with Dark Water. So calming.

  Gregorian Voices, Saturn Rings and Spaceship Warp make a great sound together. Something along the lines of Halo.

  With headphones on, the world disappears. So relaxing, the interaction of the various voices, harmonies and overtones...

  Feels like I'm watching a Halo cutscene or walking through a quiet part of a level. Definitely not a bad thing!

  Just the hummmmmmmmm....

  This setting is great, the clanging of the church bells, a resounding vocal hum, and echoey chants in the distance. I always love having a prominent, constant drone paired with other moving, shifting sounds.

  This generator is absolutely amazing! This specific setting feels like a music translation of the sudden profound reverential silence whenever the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. Keep up the good work: this generator made me a patron!

  Such a calming atmosphere. Great for writing, whether it's when I'm studying or doing it for pleasure.

  This one + the RPG Battlefield generator will transport you to the very beginning of the medieval era.

  I felt absolutely relaxed after listening to this for 2 seconds. It pairs absolutely beautifully with Church Atmosphere. It makes me feel like I am in a great basilica listening to the monks and church noises.

  I listen to these voices with the bell turned down and combined with Meadow Land. It feels like I'm sitting in the sun in the ruins of an ancient Abbey listening to the echoes of the past.

  I used this with Church Atmosphere and it's wonderful.

  This plus Beatae Memoriae and Wind Noise feels like being in an old medieval church during a winter storm. It's utterly transporting.

  There's a real dignity to Gregorian chant. I sometimes lose myself in random, pensive thought. On rare occasions, for hours at a time. And this generator helps instil a gentle balance, and also de-barbs negative thoughts that try to force their way to the surface.

  I don't know what inspired you to pursue a Gregorian chant option, but I'm SO glad you did! I was exposed to the music when I was a preteen and I've been in love with it ever since. So calming. So beautiful. So amazing. So much talent. Thank you for capturing all that and the echoing setting of a cathedral. BRILLIANT! <3

  I play this one and "Stardust" at the same time, with the sliders configured just how I like it. The way they mix together is perfect, with the rise and fall of each, the other steps in and it sounds so natural and relaxing. I put it in the background while I watch youtube and fall asleep to it. It's awesome because after the youtube video ends, I've still got this playing :)

  Ohhhh... Gregorian Chant has always been my favorite type of music. It transports me to a more thoughtful, gentler way of thinking and being. I've jokingly said that if everyone listened to Chant at least once a day, there would be less violence and hatred in the world. I used to purchase Chant CDs when I could find them. This is a far superior substitute. Love it. Thanks Dr. Pigeon.

  Combining this with Bells Breath "Singing Room" really amplifies the impression of an echoing cloister, and gives an incredible depth to the sound.

  I personally think this is one of the most comforting and the most amazing sounds on this whole site, which pains me to say. This whole site has sounds that have helped me though so many things. This one in particular, every time I so much as turn it on or listen to it, or just change from one to another of these sounds; it is an experience I wish I could put into words. Perfection.

  Combining this with the Church Atmosphere is definitely one of my favorite combos. It's like a pressure is being lifted and I feel much better.

  This is wonderful. I sing in a choir and this reminds me of all my favourite parts of choral music. Perfect for studying :)

  The great thing about Gregorian Chant is that although there are apparently familiar lyrics within the comforting sound, I cannot understand them and so there is no distraction as I work. I've only just joined up and am eager to explore, but I suspect this one will be a favourite.

  So beautiful. I'd love to know what the song means!

  So beautiful with Singing Bowls - they blend perfectly and almost bring tears to my eyes...

  This sound, humming only, mixed with Folk Tradition (Calm Blow) if you balance the levels is calming.

  This is my new favorite sound generator on the entire site. This is so beautiful, and truly helps me breath easier and relax. I'm so happy that you've added this. It is truly a life-saver.

  This sound is an amazing backdrop for calm and efficient work.

  This generator alone is easily worth 10$. Donated. Thanks.

  Well. Time to donate again. #mindblow

  This is so peaceful... I was actually on the verge of an anxiety attack when I found this. With a combination of this and the wind noise generator, I've calmed down significantly.

  Really perfect. Thank you so much for a perfect recording. Listening for it for several hours already. It really helps me to work with my PhD.

  Thank you for answering my request... I am so happy... these chants are lovely!

  Thank you so much for adding this sound. This is eternity within.

  This was the one sound that I desperately wanted. I am so excited! I look forward to many wonderful, blissful hours as I refine this noise to exactly what I'm craving. --C

  I have ALWAYS loved Gregorian Chants!! Whether is was in music or by itself, I always found it so enchanting, magical, and calming to listen to. Could be said its one of my favorite types of music. I'm so so so glad it has come to this site now! Thank you very very much!! :D

  Sounds oddly mysterious and soothing with Tibetan Spirit or Himalayan Voices.

  I love the versatility of Dr. Pigeon's work. With a few different sliders you can take a Christian art and let it invoke the feeling of nature spirits answering calls with echoes.

  I've been looking forward to this for so long. Gregorian chants have always been my go-to for relaxing study music, so this is absolutely perfect.

  I have been wanting this kind of noise generator for a long time and I am so happy to see that you have figured out a way to create it! Congratulations for your accomplishment and thank you so much. These chants are one of my favorite things to listen to.

  The reverb bits especially work well with the Church Atmosphere generator. (Throw in a little "Bells Breath" for a nice effect.)

  Wonderful! This setting makes an entrancing 3D effect, like sitting near one section, but the other is further down the church.

  Super relaxing in a weird sense.

  The contrast between the crisp singing and long echoes in 'Echoing Monks' does something very strange to my brain. It gives it a strange and interesting sensation! But for pure relaxation, I love the 'Distant Prayers'. You're endlessly creative, thank you.

  YES! I've waited patiently for this, and now that it's here, it exceeds my expectations!

  This is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. Oh my goodness. I have tears in my eyes.

  Magical — the humming drone and the second chant together take me away to a fantastic world.

  I have these sliders stacked with Mr. Rhodes, and the consonance (and occasional dissonance) combined with the lack of a strong tonal center makes this remarkably soothing for me.

  Once again amazing! I feel like I am walking among them with this one!

  This is MAGICALLY SURREAL when I combine it with Twilight and Anamnesis and letting all 3 animate. It's like being on a relaxing and spiritual journey, accepting inner peace, love, friendship, whilst finding your true definition and meaning in life.

  Oh my god. Instantly in tears. I thought Bells Breath had recently taken the cake among the wide variety of tremendous soundscapes on this wonderful website, but y'all should have seen the face I made when I saw this just now. And now I can put them TOGETHER. Perfect. Thank you so much.

  I just love this. It's magnificent.
