The third volume in this best-selling series
Singing the Divine Office, we join in a daily rhythm that anchors us in God. A Benedictine monk for 21 years, Gregory Norbet would know. The third volume in his best-selling Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer series is a wonderful way to consecrate each day through prayer and song.

Prayers, readings and meditations interspersed with music
Like the previous volumes, this one follows the structure of the Liturgy of the Hours, presenting spoken prayers, readings and meditations interspersed with music. The collection includes one full service for morning and evening prayer. Designed for both personal prayer and communal recitation, it's perfect for small prayer groups, retreats, and other gatherings of the faithful.

Lushly designed meditation book makes a good prayer companion
Lushly designed and printed on heavy, high-quality paper, the meditation book offers words and melody for each song, as well as inspirational verses, adaptations of Scripture, and space to write your own prayers and reflections. Adorned with musical and sacred images on nearly every page, these colorful booklets are lovely prayer companions. Book to be offered for sale ($11) here ... A guitar book is also available for $6.

Hymns, psalms and chants in both English and Latin
Blending new, original songs with traditional music, the collection includes hymns, psalms and chants in both English and Latin. Arrangements vary from a cappella and SATB choir with strings to settings for piano, flute, oboe, English horn and cello.

Co-edited and co-produced by artist Kathryn Carrington
Gregory's wife, Kathryn Carrington, a well-known artist and iconographer, co-edited and co-produced the collection, providing many of the song texts, inspirational readings and prayers.

A gentle, prayerful way to begin and end each day
Opening with bird song, church bells and "Benedicámus Dómino" and closing with "Divínum Auxílium" and the chirping of crickets, Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer III is a gentle, prayerful way to begin and end each day.

A Thank You Note to Gregory, after a recent concert....

    Gregory.........We prayed for you tonight in my Jesu Caritas group, that God will continue to bless so many through your art and ministry. Your visit here was certainly an avenue of grace---the comments and accolades have been flowing in. Thank you so much for what you and Kathryn (through her icons) have done for the people here. "In the Stillness" was a "spiritual re-fill" for so many of us.
   Thank you...........Father John Baran, St. Anthony's Church, Fairfield, CT.

             



 


 

Gracious Light
Peaceful Instrumentals
Gregory Norbet

Gregory Norbet composed, arranged and played the piano on Gracious Light, a collage of original instrumental music that is both hauntingly beautiful and inspiring.

The recording offers rich melodies that provide uplifting and serene moments of listening. Gregory's exquisite songs are arranged for a number of mellow instruments, among them; piano, flute, oboe, English horn, cello, harp and violins. If you liked Gregory's Waiting Moments, you'll love listening to Gracious Light.


See what one buyer said of this music:

I must admit that since I am not a Catholic, I had never heard of Gregory Norbet nor his music or Hosea Foundation. I will certainly soon go to the "Hosea" website and look further into it. Since receiving the CDs yesterday I must admit I have never heard such relaxing, beautiful, and most of all PERFECT music for meditation as on the two instumental CDs I purchased ( Gracious Light and Waiting Moments). There is no doubt our gracious Lord inspired this music due to its incredible soothing effect and Godly sounds. Over the years I have spent a fortune looking for what I have now found on these CDs. Thank you and please thank Gregory Norbet for heeding God's call and putting into music His beautiful voice. - Kirk
