A traditional order of Catholic nuns in Missouri, The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, is toping the classical music charts. “What we’re doing on these recordings is giving others a share of what is ours day after day after day . . . Most of the 22 nuns  . . . are in their 20s or 30s, including Mother Cecilia, a former French horn player in the Columbus Symphony. Except for one hour per day when they can converse, they spend all their waking moments in silence or in song.” Read about their life and music in The Wall Street Journal here: The Nuns at The Top of The Charts. Then listen to “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence” off their album, “Angels and Saints at Ephesus”:
