This is the re-issue of the first album of the Ampleforth Monks singing Gregorian Chant. The chosen pieces take the listener through the life of a monk, from his first vocation, through the vows and all the aspects of the monastic 'landscape' to the death and, we hope, the beatific vision, which gives the album it's title.
