The Pope is cutting an album that will be released in November. Proceeds from this album will benefit a charity dealing with music education for underprivileged children worldwide.

The Pope's album will be released by a US record company the same as Gun and Roses and Nirvana.

He will be heard using 5 different languages in this record which will be put on the market on November 30.

He will be accompanied by the Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome, as recorded in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. The original compositions are performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at London's Abbey Road.

The Pope is a concert level trained pianist. His favourite composers are Beethoven and Mozart. He had his Grand Piano moved to his apartments when he became Pope.

His brother the other Bishop Ratzinger is the Head of world famous Regensburg Cathedral Choir. He has coached a number of fvery famous Opera singers. I guess the Pope was in good hands for his voice training.

The project came about after the label learned earlier this year that Benedict XVI had been working on an album with the Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome.

Quoting MadameConcorde (Thread starter):

So we can look forward to a cover of "Sweet Child of Mine", then?  silly
