Alma Mater: Music From the Vatican"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

This CD is a wonderful collection of eight original modern classical compositions that feature the Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome, conducted by Monsignor Pablo Colino, Maestro Emeritus of St. Peter’s Basilica and recorded in St Peter’s Basilica. The world famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra plays on all of the specially commissioned contemporary tracks, and was recorded at the iconic Abbey Road studios in London.

The recording also features the voice of Pope Benedict XVI reciting and singing prayers in Latin, Italian, Portuguese, French and German.

Simon Boswell, Stefano Mainetti and Nour Eddine are the three contemporary composers who have contributed the eight specially commissioned pieces of music for Alma Mater.

Most of the above is from Decca Records' website. This CD is a beautiful listening experience. These new compositions are beautiful and take you on a peaceful journey into the heavens.

Here is the track listing:

Sancta Dei Genitrix
Mater Ecclesiae
Advocata Nostra
Benedicta Tu
Causa Nostrae Laetitiae
Auxilium Christianorum
Regina Coeli
Magistra Nostra
