More about Gregorian

The beginning:

Frank Peterson, upon visiting the Escorial Royal Monastery, was walking in the medieval corridors listening to rock music on his Walkman. The monks religious chanting combined with the music on his earphones and inspired him to create a unique experiment: to mix the Gregorian chants with rock melodies.

The first result of this experiment to was the world famous Enigma, which came to life in 1990, in which Frank Peterson is listed as one of the founders under the pseudonym F. Gregorian. The first Enigma album sold more than 16 million copies. In the following years it gained more and more international recognition and success with more than 200 songs appearing over 10 albums and 6 DVDs.

They have sold more than 5.5 million albums. They have earned Gold and Platinum status in more than 16 countries worldwide, which is a very impressive achievement in the music industry.

Time to time Frank Peterson retreats to his studio and immerses himself in his vast collection of music to find the best songs and melodies for his next Gregorian creations.

Frank's musical taste is exceedingly diverse, ranging from classical music to rock, and this is exceptionally reflected in his concerts. He always chooses songs that match the Gregorian style and strives to appeal to an ever-growing audience. The spectators can expect to enjoy a fusion of musical styles ranging from Depeche Mode to Pink Floyd to Metallica and some heavy metal, all combined with the traditional chants alongside other typical Gregorian features.
