MILFORD, CT (MAY 2, 2008) - Top Catholic Songs formally announced today the voting results for the Top Ten Songs for Mary from Catholic Artists. "Queen of Heaven", written and performed by Mark Mallett for his rosary project "Through Her Eyes: A Journey to Jesus" was voted #1 song. Sean Clive's "Mary's Song" comes in second, with the exceptional cover of "Hail Mary, Gentle Woman" places Gretchen Harris at #3.

Paul Harrigan's "Medjugorje" secured the #4 spot, with Fr Kent O'Connor's rendition of the "Magnificat" (from his concept album "Saints") right behind at #5. Nick Cardilino's "Do Whatever He Tells You" while Annie Karto's cover of "Song to Our Lady of Guadalupe" fill out the #6 and #7 positions, respectively. Mark Mallett places on the list a second time, as "Ode to Mary" lands at #8. The classically-trained Trish Foti Genco ranks #9 with her rendition of "Ave Maria", and the list ends with Nancy Krebs' original "Queen of Apostles".
