Priests named finalists to represent Germany in Eurovision 2013 with Gregorian hymn

2013-02-09

Though it seems an unlikely place for a group of priests, the German trio is no stranger to the spotlight. They've already released a Top 10 album in 2011 featuring classic Catholic hymns. But this song could take them to new heights.

For the competition, Father Vianey Meister, diocesan priest Andreas Schatzkle and Abbot Rhabanus Petri have teamed up with German soprano Mojca Erdmann. Together they will perform Ave Maris Stella, a Gregorian song about the Virgin Mary, dating back to the Middle Ages.

The trio has drawn comparisons to two other groups made up also of Roman Catholic clergy, The Priests from Ireland and Les Prètres from France.
