The Hills Are Alive Again, Bella!

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.
