Gregorian in Poland

Gregorian, a German group that have been a hit with audiences for 15 years, are coming to Poland in December as part of their European Winter Chants Tour.

Gregorian were formed in the 1990s when well-known music producer Frank Peterson came up with an original idea: combining medieval Gregorian chants with contemporary pop and rock music. The formula became an instant success, turning Gregorian into an international music sensation. Their first album, Masters of Chant, was released in 1999 and went platinum in Portugal and gold in six other countries in Europe. Masters of Chant went on to become a best-selling album in 10 countries around the world.

Encouraged by this successful debut, Gregorian followed up with Masters of Chant—Chapter Two, released a year later in 19 countries. The second album went gold in eight European countries and platinum in Finland.

Right after the second album, Gregorian started work on chapter three of the series, which came out in 2003. Staying faithful to the original concept, Gregorian applied a simple criterion while picking new tracks for their albums. A form of liturgical song of the Roman Catholic Church, Gregorian chant uses a seven-tone scale. In order to be appropriately arranged, songs must be capable of being fitted into this scale.

In addition to the Masters of Chant series, Gregorian have released albums such as The Dark Side, with cover versions of less poppy songs, and Gregorian Christmas: Chants & Motets, which is an intriguing alternative to traditional Christmas music.
