Alma Mater - Music from the Vatican Featuring the Voice of Pope Benedict XVI

New album features His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, reciting and singing passages and prayers. Alma Mater, Latin for “Nourishing Mother,” was made in honor of the Virgin Mary and features classical music enthusiast Pope Benedict XVI. The album offers a blend of Lauretan Litanies and Marian popular chants with eight original pieces of modern classical music. Thus far, the only other Pontiff to have released an audio CD was Pope John Paul II with Aber Pater in 1999. Vatican Radio provided the Pope’s recordings during official services at Mass, prayers, and speeches made mostly during Marian pilgrimages for use on the album. The Pontiff was recorded in St. Peter’s Basilica singing passages and prayers in Latin, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese, backed up vocally by The Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome conducted by Monsignor Pablo Colino, Maestro Emeritus of St. Peter’s Basilica.
