Another Gregorian chant album has entered into the consciousness of popular culture with Benedicta from The Monks of Norcia. Seemingly screaming with its silence, perhaps it is the appeal of extreme minimalism that grabs the attention of the masses, which have propelled the album to #1 on the Billboard charts. For pop music junkies who are influenced by headlines, know now that the recording does not offer any remixes or even instrumentation, but the simplistic beauty of its intrinsic traits are sounds to behold.
