Notes & Reviews:

MaterEucharistiae is the first ever recording from The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Be transported to their Ann Arbor chapel and experience their beautiful and pure renditions of sacred music. The fifteen peaceful and serene songs of this debut release will include original compositions written by the Sisters that reflect their Dominican spirituality, along with a selection of modern and ancient hymns and chants in English and in Latin. Singing both a capella and with the accompaniment of organ, trumpet, and chimes, the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist have created a collection that is reflective of the music in their daily community life.

The Sisters may be recognized due to their multiple appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," and the extensive publicity they have received in the US and Canada through outlets such as The New York Times, The Detroit Free Press , The Washington Post , CNN, Fox News and beyond. The Dominican Sisters of Mary placed in the finals of the recent season of The American Bible Challenge, hosted by Jeff Foxworthy on The Game Show Network. The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, founded 16years ago and with 110 sisters currently in the Community, also have teaching missions in schools all over the US.

They chant the Divine Office throughout the day and their favorite hymns throughout the year, while also composing music of their own. They follow in the thirteenth-century footsteps of St. Dominic, while very much engaging the modern world. Their Motherhouse is in Ann Arbor, MI, and they are in the process of raising funds to construct a new priory in Texas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The ensemble sings quite well together. Their performances are correct, and by that I mean they are conservative in their expression, aiming above all for a clear tone and blend.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Motherhouse of The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of (03/12/2013-03/13/2013).

Mater Eucharistiae is a collection of 15 devotional hymns in honor of the Virgin Mary, sung by the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, whose name inspired the Latin title. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the community responds to the call of Pope John Paul II for evangelization through their traditional vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, but they also find a special purpose in performing sacred music. Their evenly blended voices are well suited to these quiet, contemplative selections, whether in a cappella Gregorian chants or in harmonized arrangements with organ accompaniment and trumpet obbligato. The vocals are quite transparent and bright, though the highly resonant acoustics in the church of the order's mother house lend an ethereal quality to the singing. While this CD is of primary interest to Roman Catholic listeners, others may find its soothing tones appropriate for prayer and meditation.
