ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS has matched the success of its debut CD, ADVENT AT EPHESUS, which also was No. 1 on the Billboard magazine’s Classical Traditional Music Chart for six consecutive weeks.
In addition to the CD, ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS is available as a digital download for all devices at a variety of online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the iTunes Store.
“Once again we thank all who have been early believers in the beautiful recording, Angels and Saints at Ephesus,” said Kevin Fitzgibbons, cofounder of De Montfort Music. “It is exciting to see enthusiasm growing so quickly as more listeners are discovering the music of The Benedictines of Mary, who remain faithfully hidden in their fidelity to their monastic life.”
De Montfort enlisted nine-time International Grammy® winning producer Christopher Alder, who hails from Germany, and two-time Grammy® winning engineer Mark Donahue to record and capture the Sisters in their contemplative environment singing all of ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS.
