Pop Goes Plainsong

The male choir Gregorian, famous for their plainsong versions of rock and pop songs, is returning to Poland after their triumphant tour here last year. They perform at the Kongresowa Hall in Warsaw Nov. 13.

Gregorian is the brainchild of German music producer Frank Peterson, who first hit upon the idea of combining the seemingly incongruous musical genres of pop and Gregorian chant in the early 1990s. The group's first album came out in 1991 but it was the 1999 Masters of Chant that made Gregorian famous, going gold in six European countries and platinum in Portugal. Masters of Chant - Chapter II (2001) repeated the success of its predecessor in each of the 19 countries in which it has been released.

Gregorian have pressed on with their Masters of Chant series, with Chapter VII hitting the racks this year. The group has sold a total of more than 4 million records and have gone beyond Europe to conquer the record stores of Japan, Singapore, South Africa and, more recently, the U.S.

Their repertoire comprises both chart hits and rock classics. Dire Straits, Duran Duran, Metallica, Lionel Richie, R.E.M., Phil Collins, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, HIM, Depeche Mode, Toto, Elton John, the Bee Gees, Robbie Williams, U2, David Bowie and Lenny Kravitz are just some of the performers whose work has been given the Gregorian treatment.
