.- Geffen UK/Universal Records has announced that a new recording of Marian hymns and prayers by Pope Benedict XVI entitled, “Alma Mater,” will be released at the end of November, with proceeds going towards music education programs in poor countries.
 
The CD will include hymns in Latin, Portuguese, Italian and German, and will be released on November 30.  It will also contain litanies and prayers.  The Pope’s voice will be accompanied by the Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome, directed by Pablo Colino.
 
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Britain will also record music for the CD at London’s Abbey Road studios.  Vatican Radio will provide recordings of the Pope’s voice.
 
“We are excited that Pope Benedict XVI appreciates and has given his blessing to this project,” said Colin Barlow, president of Geffen UK.
