I was wary at first about buying this at first, because with the greatest of respect, I thought it was going to be like one of my Mums' overtly arch Catholic dreary religous CDs. I was wrong, it is nice to see the Vatican embrace the 21st century for a change, as the music draws on the churches Islamic and middle eastern roots. What is produced is music of great beauty. It is not Christmas Music and it has nothing to do with Christmas, despite the timing of the CD release.

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.

My lovely Son-in-Law gave me Alma Mater (Soul Mother) for Christmas. I love classical music and Gregorian chants so this is a wonderful find. Whether he knew the depth of beauty and love the music evokes I do not know, but I am delighted he chose it. This lovely compilation soothes the soul and with your eyes closed you can be transported to the Vatican itself. Wonderfully meditative music. Highly recommended and a must for your classical collection.

This is just fabulously gentle relaxing music - as the booklet inside describes:-
"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!'

Alma Mater (Great Mother) celebrates the veneration of the Virgin Mary, with the spoken words and Marian chants by Pope Benedict XVI. together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Vatican Choir, this is spiritually enlightening music that is just right for a relaxing festive season and beyond.
The titles of the 8 compositions says it all...

Holy Mother of God
Mother of the Church
Our Advocate
You are Blessed
Cause of Our Joy
Mary Help of Christians
Queen of Heaven
Our Teacher

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"

Enjoy it

The quality of the singing is superb, but it is the choice of music which is unexpected and interesting.
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.

What a gift this album is. The Holy Father has seen fit to bestow a sublime early christmas present on the faithful. This original and heartfelt work reacquaints us with the true meaning of Christmas. But please don't think that this wonderful tribute to the almighty is just for the festive period. This soaring, magisterial piece of art will provide solace for all right through the year.For people of all faiths this is something that will emphasise the common humanity of the dwellers of earth

Thought it was not a surprise, the music and the beautiful voice and prayers of His Holiness the Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI is something that always strikes you and falls deep in our souls, making us feel the love of God and the love of the Virgin Mary.
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.
Thank you.
