Old Roman chant, Mozarabic chant etc.

Do you know any ensembles who perform western liturgical chant preceding Gregorian chant? I've felt in love with Ensemble Organum and I'd like to hear some more.  :)

Thanks for the link but the performer of that chant is the previously mentioned Ensemble Organum. Actually that's the first song I've ever heard of them. :)

The same monks who did the CD "Chant" also did one of Mozarabic chant, "The Mystery of Santo Domingo de Silas"

If I am remembering correctly, it's mislabelled.  The info inside mentions the Mozarabic chant.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I'm quite fond of Schola Hungarica, who have released several albums of pre-Gregorian chant, but their performance is quite different from Ensemble Organum's. They use a choir of boys and men, and don't Easternize the chants at all, but perform them with a very quick and lively technique.

I was going to post these Mozarabic Mass/chants videos on a new thread, but was unaware of this old thread. So, I placed them here. ;D

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
