A Blessed Day Has Dawned is the inaugural recording by the Saint Vincent Camerata Scholars under the direction of Fr. Stephen Concordia, O.S.B. The musical program revolves around the Mass setting of Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594) entitled "Missa: Dies Sanctificatus", itself based on his Motet of the same name.

As an example of the popular Renaissance form of imitation Mass, the musical themes of the Motet are recycled throughout the various parts of the Mass: Kyrie, Gloria, Creed, Sanctus, Agnus Dei. The artistic aims of unity and economy of musical means are thus put at the service of the liturgical prayer, creating a composition of great variety of musical forms all held together by the frequent allusions to the Motet themes throughout the Mass.

The Palestrina Mass is at the center of the CD, but other styles are also present. "We wanted to fill in the other Mass parts in Gregorian chant: the Introit (entrance), the Alleluia, the Gospel of the day, and the Communion antiphon. This evokes what a Renaissance Mass might have sounded like, with some parts sung in polyphony, and others chanted," said Fr. Stephen Concordia.
