The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles

Looking for music for Lent? A traditional order of Catholic nuns in Missouri, The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, have the number one classical album in the United States. “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 “O Sacred Head Surrounded” track 10, off their album, “Lent at Ephesus”:
