Lent At Ephesus

Thank You Gifts

Lent at Ephesus tells the fascinating story of how the Nuns came to record their album and details their lives at their monastery. Full length performances of traditional and original chants demonstrate the power and beauty of these Lenten songs. 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. 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.
