The complete Gregorian chant, including many world-premiere recordings, synchronised with square-note scores, Latin texts, and translations into English, is now available in your pocket! Neumz is the largest recording project ever undertaken, more than 7000 hours of music of transcendental beauty for the soul sung by the community of Benedictine nuns of Notre-Dame de Fidélité de Jouques. Enjoy hours of this ethereal, relaxing music for free, let it accompany your moments of meditation and lift your spirit towards paradise!
“The recordings of clear unaccompanied voices are speckled with authentic sounds such as the creak of wooden benches, the occasional coughing or dropping of prayer books and bell chimes.” The Guardian
The Neumz team will continue to update the app every day with new chants until 2022 when it will include the entire three-year liturgy of the Novo Ordo, with the 2019 order offered first.
An inexhaustible supply of healing music that touches your heart and soul, to meditate, pray, relax to, and achieve true mindfulness. Follow the free, fluid, rhythmic forms of Gregorian chant, akin to yogic breathing, to open deep emotional resonances.
COMPLETE LATIN RITE
Neumz is the first complete recording and digital source of liturgical materials for the Roman Rite: the entire contents of the Psalter, Lectionary, Collectary, Antiphonary, Responsoriary, and Gradual are assembled into a "Liber Digitalis".
Neumz presents the liturgy with an easy to use, solar calendar.
The chants of the Divine Office and the Ordinary and Propers of the Mass are presented in their natural context.
Since the Novus Ordo comprises a three-year cycle, the app will have occasional discrepancies as we add the current year's recording's to the database.
HOW IT WORKS
Create or log in to your existing account.
Carry the entire Divine Office in your pocket!
Follow the square note score of each chant, synchronised to scroll with the music.
Follow the Latin texts with their English translation as it scrolls line by line to the music.
Soothing and calming, this music is seemingly suspended in an eternal oscillation, at once both reaffirming and cancelling the sensation of time, inducing a meditative state by simultaneously enhancing focus and relaxation.
Gregorian chant is the music of the Western Church, sung for over 1000 years without interruption. The Benedictine order adopted it as the music for its prayers and has cultivated it ever since.
The serene sounds of these ancient chants have proven to be a real source of calm for our users worldwide, regardless of beliefs. This medieval music is perfect for prayer, meditation, focus, relaxation, and calm.
THE SISTERS OF JOUQUES
The Abbey of Notre-Dame de Fidélité is a monastery of Benedictine nuns located in Jouques, near Aix-en-Provence, France. The growth of the community allowed them to found the monastery Notre-Dame de l’Écoute in Benin. As of 2020, the community in Jouques includes forty-five sisters, aged 26 to 85.

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing Treasure of the Faith
This app is a huge gift to humanity! Whether you are learning to chant, wanting to incorporate it into a daily practice or stuck in a parish without chant this app gives you the opportunity to practice with beautiful recordings perfectly lined up with the liturgical year.
Since it’s still a work in progress there are some features that will get better with time. It will be fantastic when the search function works well. It would also be great if at some point in addition to searching you could look through an index alphabetical by function (hymn, introit, communion etc). There is the occasional issue with a psalm verse being a different melodically than the recording (example psalm tone written but melismatic line sung) and rarely a screen showing the next chant and stays there until the correct chant is sung.
No complaints at all though, so happy to have this amazing resource! It’s a must for all Catholics.
Devine office prayer book
I LOVE this app and have been using it everyday. I am a person that loves the feel of a book in my hand. Is it possible to purchase the copy of Devine office that the sisters use? Their chants do not line up with any of my devine office copies and I know it’s because the sisters are using a devine office made for monastic use. The problem that I’m having is I want the exact copy the sister’s use so I can go along. I will pay any price and buy from any source. Thank you!
I was looking forward to the release of this app since I first read about it in the New York Times. It is a unique and profound insight into the music, prayers, and traditions of a Catholic faith that has vanished from most of our lives. The work and dedication present here — the creators of the app and above all the devotion of the nuns who have let us into their faith and art — is transforming and beautiful.
