This devotional gem consists of 15 traditional chants and praises to Mary who has been the source of healing and comfort for centuries in the Catholic church and elsewhere. She is revered for her faith and her life of service. Singing does seem to be a most appropriate response to the blessings she has showered upon human beings.
The lovely voices of Noirin Ni Riain, the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble, Ruth Cunningham, the Catherine Braslavsky Ensemble, and others stir our souls and inspire us to a meditative state of gratitude. Sounds True has provided a helpful and illuminating small guide to Songs of Mary with an introduction along with translations of the lyrics. This 66-minute CD captures the global impact of Mary with chants from medieval Spain to France, Ireland, and Mexico.
