Like so many of the great success stories of the past, the tale of GREGORIAN also began from humble origins. No one could have predicted the level of success that would eventually be realized by one man's ingenious creation.

 And yet… If we turn our gaze back all the way to the beginning, before the gold and platinum awards and the millions of recordings sold. If we stopped at each country visited, paid homage to every city played and reignited the millions of hearts around the world that have been touched by the emotive music and stunning spectacles of GREGORIAN. We would discover that at one point it was all nothing more than the infant flicker of an idea. An idea from a man who had the audacity to merge two separate worlds.

In the year of 1989 a young Frank Peterson walked contemplatively through the royal monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial in Spain. The grounds of the medieval monastery left an indelible mark on his soul. Accompanying Peterson as he walked was the feint sound of modern-day music playing quietly through the headphones of his Walkman. Moved by the stark contrast of these two colliding worlds the initial idea of mixing ancient Gregorian music with modern day hits took hold of Peterson and the rest, as they say, is history.

Peterson initially brought the idea to life for the first time with Michael Cretu with the worldwide sound phenomenon Enigma. The first album MCMXC a.D. appeared in 1990 and quickly became a worldwide success story. MCMXC a.D. was number 1 in 41 different countries and received 57 platinum and 45 gold medals. It is consequently considered the most successful German album of all time.
