 Thank you, Sisters for your inspiration! March 21, 2014 By Sister Monica S. (Atlantic Highlands, NJ) See All My Reviews "The Cloistered Benedictine Nuns in song are no secret to another Sister who is an Active Sister "outside the walls" so to speak! I am so proud of these cloistered women who through their gift of music bear witness to the beauty of the Art of Music. And in turn evoke attention to the Giver of all gifts, our Creator, who is Beauty, itself. The Chant is so peaceful and life-giving that I used this CD as an introduction to a day of prayer at my convent for a group of people in my parish here. Thank you, Nuns, for your inspiration!"

 Angels siging? March 14, 2014 By Richard K. (Goshen, IN) See All My Reviews "Don't make the mistake of confusing the singing of the Benedictines of Mary with the singing of angels. But you can be forgiven for confusing the two." Report Abuse
