Benedictine Chant from St. Benedict's Hometown + Honoring The Virgin Mary = Heaven.

In all seriousness, this truly is a beautiful album. Most albums receive this kind of attention, but this is the first that actually comes from monks from St. Benedict Himself. Plus their devotion to The Virgin Mary can truly be heard as the album weaves the story of her life through song. This is the kind of music iTunes needs, music that will gratify and stir the soul to its highest calling. As an Benedictine Oblate, this helps me to enrich my prayer life even more, and so will the prayer lives of all denominations, but especially Christians. the album encapsulates St. Benedict's motto of "Ora et Labora" (prayer and work). What a privilege we have.

About The Monks of Norcia

I Monaci di Norcia, anglicized to the Monks of Norcia, are members of the Order of St. Benedict at the Monastery of San Benedict in Norcia, Italy. Practicing intonation as part of daily services, the group recorded an album of Gregorian chants in 2015 with Grammy-winning engineer Jonathan Stokes and Grammy-winning producer Christopher Alder. The 33-track Benedicta: Marian Chant from Norcia includes many traditional favorites as well as an original composition by the monks, "Nos Qui Christi Iugum." The album topped the Billboard classical chart and appeared on the Billboard 200. ~ Marcy Donelson
