GREGORIAN - PURE CHANTS
With modern music on his ears, Hamburg music producer Frank Peterson was inspired to do something new when he visited the royal monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial in Spain in 1989.
Why not mix ancient Gregorian music with modern music?
No sooner said than done. Peterson first implemented the idea with Michael Cretu and formed the groundbreaking music project "Enigma." The first album MCMXC a.D. was released in 1990 and after a short time it had the highest possible worldwide recognition. With the release of the album "Master of Chant" by GREGORIAN in 1999, Frank Peterson seamlessly continued the success of "Enigma".
To date, GREGORIAN has sold over 10 million records worldwide and achieved gold and platinum status in 24 different countries. Around 3 million visitors have seen the ensemble live at their concerts in 31 countries and have been thrilled by the live performances of the men in monk's robes.
The powerful-voiced singers always manage to create goosebump moments. Their mixture of Gregorian chant with modern rock and pop music paired with spectacular stage shows makes GREGORIAN unique and breathtaking.
After 20 years of opulent shows in arenas and concert halls with pyro, lasers and flames GREGORIAN comes back to the origin. This time it is primarily about authenticity and pure music...accompanied by dreamlike light images.
The "Pure Chants" tour in early 2021 will take Gregorian through the churches and theaters of Germany - a special experience for all fans of mystical music.
