Dominican Chant - Christmas Vigil Gospel

The New Liturgical Movement pointed out an amazing audio of the Christmas Vigil Mass Gospel, The Geneology Our Lord Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew sung in Dominican chant by Br. Benedict Jonak, OP, a Deacon in Oxford. Certainly worth the eight and a half minutes to hear.

The tone is nothing I have heard before, but it is very beautiful and sung very well. Given the length of the chant and the complexity of the tone, I am very impressed with this. It certainly reminds me how much I have to learn about chant.
