Beata viscera (plainchant)

The plainchant Communion motet of the Votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin sung here by Cappella Pratensis directed by Stratton Bull using medieval Latin pronunciation with the singers grouped around one book as they would have been during medieval times. This is about as close to hearing the chant sung they it was sung when it was first written as you can get. Enjoy :-).
