lma Mater is an extraordinary and uplifting collaborative musical creation which allows people to hear Pope Benedict XIV as they have never heard him before.
Filmed live in performance in Westminster Cathedral, Alma Mater features the voice of the former pontiff reciting and singing in this unique and moving combination of Lauretan litanies, Marian chants and wonderful original pieces by three distinguished contemporary composers.
The Pope’s words, recorded both in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and during various pilgrimages, blend with the music performed by two world-famous ensembles: the Vatican’s Philharmonic Academy of Rome Choir and Britain’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The result is a creation of exceptional beauty that will appeal to music-lovers everywhere.
Alma Mater was originally released as an album, and this DVD includes ‘The Making of a Masterpiece’, a documentary charting the extraordinary story behind the album’s creation.
