Benedictine Nuns of Regina Laudis: The original Christmas music was sung as an act of prayer, voices raised to God in worship, rather than as a performance. The Announcement of Christmas carries listeners through the different phases of the season: the four weeks of Advent, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and finally the Epiphany. With selections that range from majestic ensembles to stunning solo pieces, the nuns of Regina Laudis Abbey provides listeners with an unforgettable experience- a musical masterpiece that at once thrills the ears and opens the hearts to the birth of Christ.
