Gregorian Chant: The Eternal Song

I’ve been staring at the italicized words Lux et origo, located under the Easter Kyrie that we chant every morning during Eucharist. I know these are the opening words to a trope that was added to the Kyrie tune during medieval centuries.  Light and Origin….

I’ve finally looked it up…the full opening phrase is “Light and Origin of Light”.  What a great thought to ponder during the season of resurrection!

About Sr. Fidelis

I am 46 years old, and have been a Sister at the Community of Jesus for 26 years. Having grown up here, I have been singing Gregorian chant since I was 10! I was very blessed to study Gregorian chant with Dr. Mary Berry in Cambridge, England and here at home. Recently, I have been able to do some radio and tv interviews, sharing about the blessings of Gregorian chant. I love leading chant workshops, and have been able to do that in the US and abroad.
