Title - 'Easter at Ephesus' (Decca Records)
Artist - Benedictines of Mary Queen of Apostles
For those not informed with regard the Benedictines of Mary Queen of Apostles, the community was established in 1995 as a small order of Benedictine nuns under the auspices of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Indeed, they were originally called the Oblates of Mary, Queen of Apostles. They began following a monastic horarium defined in the Rule of Saint Benedict, and chanting the Divine Office in Latin according to the 1962 Breviarium Monasticum.
Now, over all these years, the Benedictines of Mary Queen of Apostles are the #1 bestselling Billboard Classical Traditional artist for two consecutive years! Here on Easter at Ephesus the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles join forces once more with 11-time Grammy Award-winning producer Christopher Alder for their newest release.
Featuring an array of glorious chants and exhilarating hymns for Eastertide, all brought forth by the unearthly voices of the nuns that have inspired audiences throughout the world, Easter at Ephesus is an outstanding collection of 27 Chants. The beauty and peacefulness within this music is exactly what you would expect, nay, hope for. Spanning the season of Easter through Pentecost, this is the music to reach for when looking for serenity and calm; of that have no doubt.
