Music from the Vatican : Alma Mater Featuring the Voice of Pope Benedict XVI
Top customer reviews
Whatever ones religous affilation this is music that uplifts, and in a world of present day strife this is musical balm to the soul.
Don't bother with the deluxe version, because the DVD isn't worth the extra cost, very dissapointing, a mere 22 min skimmed over documentary of the making of the album. The people interviewed focus completely on the music, the significance of the meaning behind the chants is lost on them, they clearly don't understaand what they're dealing with here. To them it's just nice music.
"Listen to it in the morning and its a tonic that fills you with courage and serenity; during the day its a travelling companion that whispers good thoughts to keep you on the right track; and in the evening its a sweet song thats sets the heart at rest with its embrace of wise words and intense melodies. Its a gift of which we can say without hesitation: 'Thank You!'
The titles of the 8 compositions says it all...
Holy Mother of God
Mother of the Church
You are Blessed
Cause of Our Joy
Mary Help of Christians
Queen of Heaven
All beatifully performed, to bring out the very essence of Faith for the 'Great Mother'
As the Pope himself said once
"The singing of the Church comes ultimately out of love. It is the utter depth of love that produces the singing"
One might have expected plainsong and 18th century polyphony, but some of the items are a skilful blend of both.
An unusual and pleasing record.
It is a remarkable work, allow us to listen where ever and whenever we feel need of praying and to be close to God almighty and His love and care for us all.
