"Heart Speaks to Heart" CD

I received yesterday a CD titled "Heart Speaks to Heart" which I'd ordered from the Catholic Truth Society. It is "A spiritual day with Blessed John Henry Newman in words and music" narrated by The Most Reverend Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham and performed by the Schola Cantamus directed by Jeremy de Satge, released by The Music Makers.

According to the liner notes, it offers a selection of the spiritual writings of Blessed Newman, including translations of hymns for the Divine Office made by him. The CD begins with "Lead, Kindly Light, continues with the Hours of Matins, Prime, etc, and concludes with Compline and "Praise to the Holiest" one of the hymns taken from "The Dream of Gerontius".
