    The most beautiful inspiring recording! An absolute winner!!!

    One of the most beautiful spiritual recordings I have ever heard! I have many beautiful recordings as I worked for Naxos America for many years. It will bring tears to your eyes. I highly recommend it! A stunning, inspiring CD. 10 out of 10!

    more from this reviewer

    Pope Benedict XVI is very artistic and talented.

    This music is so different and not really as expected, because it entertains as well as inspires, in different languages. And even not understanding all the words he says, it seems to transcend that difficulty by just listening.
