Benedictines of Mary sing of Angels and Saints at Ephesus

Atlanta, GA (April 9, 2013) - As a follow-up to their chart-topping first release with the Decca Label Group, The Benedictines of Mary unite their voices once more in ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS. This second album, a year round collection, will entertain and inspire, featuring 17 English and Latin pieces sung a cappella for the feasts of the holy Saints and angels. Recorded once again at their Priory in the heartland of America, this new album is a dynamic yet pure fusion of their contemplative sound. The Sisters call to mind the glory of the future vision of God in the company of all of His angels and Saints. Click here for a visual sneak peek at the album.

Last November and December, the Sisters' debut album, ADVENT AT EPHESUS, with De Montfort Music/Decca, spent six weeks at #1 on Billboard's Classical Music Chart, and the Sisters ended up as the #1 Classical Traditional Artist of 2012, according to Nielson's Soundscan. Featured on NPR, USA Today, People Magazine and The Washington Times as well as countless other critically acclaimed press outlets, The Benedictines of Mary have created another beautiful recording of their music.

"Gathering the hymns we have learned and loved, it seemed only natural to suggest the theme of the Angels and Saints, the heralds of God's glory and grace for this album. Music is a vital part of our spirituality, and it has been a blessing to have it blossom and broaden in recent years. We are all very excited about this release," said Sr. Scholastica, the Order's sub prioress and the designer of the album's artwork.

De Montfort enlisted nine time International Grammy® winning producer Christopher Alder, who hails from Germany and two-time Grammy® winning engineer Mark Donahue to record and capture the Sisters in their contemplative environment singing all of ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS.

"The Benedictines of Mary have again created a beautiful recording to connect us to the oldest traditions of European monastic chant and hymns," remarked Costa Pilavachi, Senior Vice-President, Classical A+R Universal Music Group International.

Kevin Fitzgibbons, CEO of De Montfort Music remarked: "On the heels of the impact of ADVENT AT EPHESUS, here is the angelic music of ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS, an answer to numerous requests and comments asking for new music to listen to year-round from the Benedictines of Mary."

The full track list for the album:

1. Dear Angel Ever At My Side
2. Ave Regina Cćlorum
3. Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
4. Christe Sanctorum
5. Duo Seraphim
6. Virgin Wholly Marvellous
