Description

Devotional Music to Call on Mary for Support and Guidance

Create a quiet respite from the rush of modern life with Songs of Mary, a soothing collection of 15 traditional chants and praises that call on Our Lady for healing, guidance, and comfort.

Through subtle instrumentation and heartfelt vocals, this carefully selected music will gently uplift your spirit with the blessings of the Holy Mother. Journey to medieval Spain with selections from the treasury of songs known as the Cantigas de Santa Maria, to France with a troubadour's ballad, through Ireland with a Celtic prayer of protection, then be renewed with Hildegard of Bingen's devotions, and follow Mary to the New World with chants honoring the Virgin of Guadalupe.

I was hoping for more instrumental rather than all the singing on this CD. It is beautiful however.

What a wonderful compilation of music devoted to the Blessed Mother. To appreciate the beauty of this music, one doesn't need to understand the words which are primarily in Latin. The depth of the meaning goes beyond any human language. The vocals are clear and pristine and convey in heartfelt emotion the true meaning of Mry, Mother of God.

Not at all what I expected. I listened once and I'm sure I won't listen to it again. I should have done more research on what this CD sounded like.

I ordered this because the sound samples appealed to my ear. I am not Christian and have never had an interest in Mary. And I am completely blown away by the incredible music and musicianship on this album. It is divinely beautiful to my mortal ears and heart. High quality food for the soul

I listened often to the chanting. Then put it away. It seemed to prepare me for surgery on 12/16. Haven't listened since I came home. Happy with my purchase.

One more thing...there is a booklet in the cd that has the lyrics in the original language and a translation.

Review for Songs of Mary Review by TOM BURDO
Rating

For the most part, each of the songs on this CD are sung in a high-pitched woman's voice, often accompanied by simple strumming of a guitar or lute. Although each song has a different singer, I found most of the songs so similar that the album was monotonous.

This was made worse since none are sung in English (and the CD lacks any printed lyrics), so I cannot understand the meaning of the words. (Of course, it doesn't help that I find high-pitched voices [or instruments} jangles my nerves after awhile......)

There were several exceptions, songs which I did enjoy. Band #3 was the best, great. I loved it. Many voices, including low-pitched (men's), beautifully sung. This song brought tears to my eyes as I realized "It's true!" (about Mary's appearances told in "The Miracle Detective" by Randall Sullivan, for example....)

Band #14 is similar, many voices sing various parts simultaneously, the same group as band #3, I think....again, no instruments...almost as good as Band #3.

Another selection I liked is band #12, since the voice was for me somewhat soothing, at a slightly lower pitch (I would call it a "mezzo-soprano") than most of the other songs which are sung by a single vocalist.

There was a fourth song I liked somewhat, though I forget its exact number but somewhere in the middle of the album.....as I recall it sounded like many nuns in a convent singing a beautiful hymn, almost like Gregorian chant perhaps?, many voices, with several different parts together, no instruments accompanying.

If all the songs of this album were of the same quality as these four above, this CD would be a worth addition to anyone's collection. However, as it is, I cannot recommend this CD.

If you do not mind high-pitched voices, however, nor wish to understand the words, perhaps this album might be okay for your listening taste?
