Bridge Over Troubled Water - Gregorian Chant (HD)

♬ (HD) Bridge Over Troubled Water ~ Gregorian Chant ~ Created by Leroux

Bridge over Troubled Water is the title song of Simon & Garfunkel's final album together, released January 26, 1970. Simon wrote the song in the summer of 1969 and its recording process exposed many of the underlying tensions that eventually led to the breakup of the duo after the album's completion. Most notably, Paul Simon has repeatedly expressed regret that he insisted that Art Garfunkel sing this song as a solo, as it focused attention on Garfunkel and relegated Simon to a backing position. Garfunkel said that the moment when he performed it in Madison Square Garden in 1972 was "almost biblical".

Gregorian chant is the central tradition of Western plainchant, a form of monophonic liturgical chant in Western Christianity that accompanied the celebration of Mass and other ritual services. LINK: Youtube
