From Cloistered Nuns to an International record deal

2014-02-14

They live a simple life. They sow, paint, pick cotton and tend to livestock. But above all else they pray. The Benedictines of Mary are basically hidden from the world, but they've found a way to reach out to millions across the globe. 

-Do, you hear that there's no 'm'. It's like the. 
-Yeah play 16. 

Their voices have traveled all the way from their unassuming monastery in Missouri, to the world. They don't need much marketing. 

Their singing alone is enough
 
'One of the most unlikely hit records, a group of nuns.” 

"Some of the nuns have no idea they're such a hit.”

For 13 weeks, their bestselling album, 'Angels and Saints at Ephesus' was No. 1 on the Billboard's Classical Traditional Music chart. 
Now they've released their third album: Lent at Ephesus.

"The sisters are excited to finally be doing an album devoted entirely to the Season of Lent.” 

Before reviews, press and record deals, music was already part of their lives. They sing together eight times a day, chanting the Divine Office.

So, the recording studio came to them. They've even managed to impress a Grammy Award winning producer, who describes the experience as one of the highlights of his career.

"So they are actually written for sopranos, altos, tenors and bases. And what this all female choir has done is made those setting works with all female singers.” 

Lent at Ephesus has a little bit of everything, including  'O Sacred Head Surrounded' and 'Adoramus.'

It's a talent that's impressive, moving and intriguing. Especially when they talk about the source of their inspiration. 

"Of course music is an integral part of our life. We are in the chapel eight times a day, singing to God and it is just something that comes naturally to our hearts.”
