Angels and Saints at Ephesus No. 1 on Billboard's Classical Traditional Music Chart for eighth straight week
Atlanta, GA (July 3, 2013) - ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS, the hit CD from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, is No. 1 on Amazon's Top 100 list for all music, besting albums from Daft Punk, Black Sabbath and Kanye West. The sacred CD from the Missouri-based nuns also remains atop Billboard magazine's Classical Traditional Music Chart for an eighth consecutive week and jumped to No. 2 on its Overall Classical Music Chart and No. 4 on its Christian Music Chart.
The Benedictines' critically acclaimed debut CD, ADVENT AT EPHESUS, released last year, also continues to impress, claiming the No. 3 spot on Billboard magazine's Classical Traditional Music Chart.
Since its worldwide debut May 7, ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS has topped a group of classical albums that includes Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album and Downton Abbey: The Essential Collection.
"The music of The Benedictines of Mary brings hope and peace to hearts that are restless," said Kevin Fitzgibbons, cofounder of De Montfort Music. "To be able to help share this with the world and to observe the outpouring of positivity resulting from time spent listening to this collection is simply miraculous. For a hidden contemplative group of nuns to be at the top of the charts is a true phenomenon of great proportions."
ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS has garnered coverage from numerous secular and Catholic media outlets, including:
