Sophia Music Group is Pleased to Announce the Reissuing of Acclaimed #1 Billboard Chart Topping Recording:

Benedicta: Marian Chant from Norcia

by the Monks of Norcia

Sophia Music Group/De Montfort are pleased to announce the reissuing of highly acclaimed #1 Classical Billboard Album BENEDICTA: Marian Chant from Norcia by The Monks of Norcia. USA TODAY described the recording as “gentle tones— and many voices singing as one — creates a calming, ethereal quality that at its core is not a performance — it is prayer.”  This beloved recording was sung by the monks in their chapel; San Benedetto basilica, the birthplace of Saint Benedict and Saint Scholastica, which was subsequently destroyed in the 2016 earthquake. Recorded by 11-time Grammy Award-winning producer Christopher Alder and Grammy Award-winning engineer Jonathan Stokes, ‘BENEDICTA’ resulted in an album of stunning Gregorian chant that transports the listener to the Monks’ pre-earthquake monastery in Italy. The reissuing of BENEDICTA guarantees the preservation of this venerable repertoire consisting of 33 tracks of Marian chant, including the well-known “Regina Caeli” and “Ave Regina Caelorum” as well as original and previously unreleased songs.
