I should have a few chants / monk audio, I'm home all tomorrow so I'll see what I have to send you.

As for anything that doesn't open any portals,......no guarantees..... the last time I used one of the chants I swear everytime I look down I have 2 shadows following me now..:eek: ;)...lol :D

Look up Gregorian Chant, or Dies Irae (part of the old Latin Mass and genuinely scary.Means Day of Wrath). Dies Irae comes in chanted and musical versions for your listening pleasure.
Church Slavonic (Slavic) and Byzantine or Greek chanting is a little less common than Latin, and will have your Latin-understanding friends a little nuts as they try to figure it out.
The Heart Sutra is not scary, but it is in Tibetan, and the way Tibetan monks chant, it can sound creepy. Mixed in with other Halloween sounds, it might be exactly what you want (and it takes a long time, so not so much looping)
Go to YouTube and type in the terms I suggested, and see if any of them work for you.

These are some great suggestion - going to look them all up since we might return to our 'haunted monastery' theme next year.
I quite like the piece De Profundis by Arvo Part (hear it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhcYvl0Cxh0 ) which has some lovely low notes, but it doesn't sound scary enough all the way through.

Here´s defintely a great collection of moody and atmospheric classics.

Beside famous things like "In the Hall of the Mountain King" there are also awesome treasures like "Central Park in the Dark" to discover.

look up an album called "masters of chant-in the mix" Front.jpg also, nox arcana has an album called winter's Knight (no, not a spelling error) and there is one pretty creepy tune on there (number 12 i believe) called "Gregorian Hymn".......good luck.
