  New "ALMA MATER - Music from the Vatican" disc released 30th November  10strat at 16:45 on 16 November 2009

Hi all,

Just posting because I thought you may be interested in a new disc that's being released on November 30th. "ALMA MATER - Music from the Vatican" is made up of a stunning blend of Lauretan litanies and Marian popular chants with eight original pieces of modern classical music. What makes this release especially unique is that this is the very first time that the voice of Pope Benedict XVI, speaking in Latin, Italian, Portuguese, French and German, will be heard on an album, thanks to the audio recordings of Vatican Radio.
You can find out more about the release on the official website and you can watch a video of the release on the official YouTube channel.
On the official website you can win a pair of free tickets to a concert of music from the album. The concert will be held on December 2nd at Londonís Westminster Cathedral and will feature the choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome.

Good luck!
