The Vatican Alma Mater

"The Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will release eight original pieces of modern classical music featuring prayers recited and sung by Pope Benedict XVI recorded mostly during His Marian pilgrimages by Vatican Radio."

The album, released worldwide on 30 November 2009, will be an enchanting blend of Lauretan Litanies and Marian popular chants with eight original pieces of modern classical music. What makes this release especially unique is that this is the very first time that the Voice of Pope Benedict XVI, here speaking and singing in Latin, Italian, Portuguese, French and German, will be heard on an album, thanks to the audio-recordings of Vatican Radio.

"I am convinced that music really is the universal language of beauty which can bring together all people of good will on earth.”
Pope Benedict XVI
