ATLANTA, June 13, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles is No. 1 on Billboard magazine's Classical Traditional Music Chart for the fifth straight week. The sacred CD from the Missouri-based nuns also earned the No. 11 spot on Billboard's Overall Classical Music Chart.
ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS once again topped a group of classical albums that includes Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album and Downton Abbey: The Essential Collection.
In addition to the CD, the album is available as a digital download for all devices at a variety of online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the iTunes Store.
"To have the music of the Benedictines of Mary topping Billboard's Classical Traditional Chart is nothing short of miraculous," said Monica Fitzgibbons, cofounder of De Montfort Music. "Their music is making its way into the hearts and homes of many who have repeatedly related experiences of peace and beauty resulting from time spent listening. What a gift the Sisters are to the world."
De Montfort enlisted nine-time International Grammy® winning producer Christopher Alder, who hails from Germany, and two-time Grammy® winning engineer Mark Donahue to record and capture the Sisters in their contemplative environment singing all of ANGELS AND SAINTS AT EPHESUS.
The Sisters' debut album, ADVENT AT EPHESUS, with De Montfort Music/Decca, remained on Billboard magazine's Classical Traditional Music Chart this week, coming in at No. 10.
