CD, ANGELS AND SAITS AT EPHESUS - BENEDICTINES OF MARY, QUEEN OF APOSTLES
Having spent six weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Classical Traditional Music Chart with their debut release Advent at Ephesus, the Benedictines of Mary unite their voices once more in Angels and Saints at Ephesus.

Featured on NPR, USA Today, EWTN, Vatican Radio, People Magazine and The Washington Times as well as countless other critically acclaimed press outlets, the Benedictines of Mary have created another beautiful collection of music designed to inspire. Angels and Saints at Ephesus features 17 English and Latin pieces sung a cappella on the feasts of the holy saints and angels throughout the year at their priory in the heart of America. In the pure fusion of their now well established bell-like choir sound, the Sisters once again radiate peace with their hymns of praise in the company of the angels and saints.
