Who Knew? Not me that's for sure. There is a new album coming at the end of the month called "Alma Mater" featuring the voice of our Pope.
As the site says:
Alma Mater is the first release on Geffen records of modern classical music from The Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra featuring prayers recited and sung by Pope Benedict XVI. Discover more about the music here.If the music is anything like the trailer, it is very clearly inspired. WOW!!
