Info for Lent At Ephesus
Benedictines of Mary have once again captured the hearts of the masses with their contemplative and pure music on their new recording, Lent at Ephesus. Lent At Ephesus features poignant chants, intricate harmonies and rousing hymns of glory and redemption, encapsulating the reflective season of Lent. The reclusive group of Sisters offered NPR’s Morning Edition a rare glimpse into their music making process, for an endearing story that aired February 11th documenting their “Monastic Life At The Top Of The Charts.”
Angels and Saints at Ephesus and Advent at Ephesus, were also crowned Billboard’s #2 and #3 Top Traditional Classical Albums for 2013 respectively. The Benedictines of Mary were also named Billboard’s Top Traditional Classical Album Artist of 2013, for the second year in a row following the same honor in 2012.
Offering their lives in prayer and sacrifice for priests, The Benedictines of Mary use the work of their hands primarily for the making of priestly vestments. They also take care of gardens, an orchard and a small farm. They paint gorgeous icons and live an artistic lifestyle based upon their religious vows. Leaving behind their families, bank accounts, and all of their possessions, these women live together in community following closely The Benedictine Rule of life known as “ora et labora” (work and pray).
The Sisters are young and extremely musical. They do not set foot beyond their Midwest rolling farmland, focusing solely on living an austere, yet joyful life set apart from the world. Working on their farm and mostly living off the land, they sing together eight times a day as part of their daily monastic schedule of Vespers and Divine Office, lifting their hearts to God through music.
The order’s Prioress, Mother Cecilia, vacated her seat in the horn section with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra in Ohio to enter religious life, despite her conservatory background where music was emphasized over religion. A graduate of The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, in Houston, Texas, Mother Cecilia acts as arranger and drives the selection of repertoire for the recordings. Sr. Scholastica, the Order’s sub prioress helps design their album artwork.
