The Holy Rosary with the Schola of the Oxford Oratory and Meditations by J.H. Newman

While looking at the news of the recent events at the Oxford Oratory surrounding Cardinal Newman, I noticed this rather interesting offering:


Pray the Rosary with Cardinal Newman (Product link)

Let the Venerable Cardinal John Newman and Father Werenfried van Straaten, the late founder of Aid to the Church in Need, inspire you in prayer. This unique recording of spoken word and music leads the listener in the Rosary. Each of the traditional mysteries of joy, sorrow and glory are introduced with readings from the writings of Cardinal Newman and Father Werenfried, while the organ music and plainsong interludes, reverentially sung by the Oxford Oratory Schola, reflect the appropriate moods of the mysteries and give a musical uplift to the prayer.
