The first seeds of the concept of "Gregorian" were sown the Hamburg music producer Frank Peterson after a trip to Royal monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial in Spain in 1989. The medieval monastery and the castle made an indelible impression on him. When he walked through their territory, listening on your player of contemporary music, such a sharp contrast sparked the initial inspiration to experiment in mixing the ancient Gregorian music with modern pop and rock hits.
A pilot project in this direction became the famous band "Enigma", which Frank Peterson founded together with renowned producer and musician Michael Cretu.
In 1999 the project "Gregorian" was finally formed as an independent musical act and the first album "Masters Of Chant" turned into a phenomenal success. In subsequent years, "Gregorian" has sold 15 million records worldwide, and their concerts were visited by over 2.6 million viewers in 31 countries across the world.
