Pope Benedict XVI might not be ready for a solo album, but his voice will be heard on a new CD. Geffen Records will release the "Alma Mater" ("Nourishing Mother") on Nov. 30. It will include a hymn sung by Benedict as well as snippets of prayers and talks.
The Catholic News Service story notes that Benedict is a music lover himself. Perhaps this is just the beginning of his musical career. Would you like to see the Holy Father in the recording studio?
