The Pope's Christmas Album
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:00:10 PM »
Top of the Popes

He's a flamboyant dresser, regularly performs to huge, adoring crowds and is no stranger to controversy -- and has just put out a long awaited new album. No, we're not contemplating the return of Robbie Williams. In fact, no less a figure than Pope Benedict XVI is about to have a stab at chart success with the release this week of an official Vatican record, Alma Mater.

Though you won't find Il Papa bad-mouthing Gary Barlow, belting out 'Let Me Entertain You' or espousing his belief in little green men in the sky (he's more inclined to think there's one big guy in the sky), he will nonetheless be vying with Williams for the Christmas number one spot with an album featuring the pontiff reciting and singing texts and prayers set to traditional church music and especially composed pieces.
Stay thirsty for knowledge my friends.
