UPDATE: I added Amazon Search Boxes for the UK and for CANADA at the bottom of the blog. You can cut and paste titles into them.
Looking for small gifts that are sure to be well received?
First, please use my Amazon search box on the left side bar. That’ll help me.
Now, check out the Mystic Monk Coffee Sampler Page and get a passel o’ little packets of coffee, just 2 oz. each. They have four different 9 pack sample options and one 30 pack. (Go for the 30… just do it.) They also have Teas.
Next I received a note from the distributors of the music CD of Benedictine Monks at Norcia.
As you know the dear Monks of Norcia released their major label debut this year. The year ending 2015 Billboard charts were just published and they (The Monks of Norcia) came in #2 Classical Traditional Artist(just inches behind Bocelli- whom you would expect to top that chart) and also the Monks came in #10 Classical Overall(mainstream classical) Artist.
Not too shabby for a monastic community set in the Umbrian Mountain village of Norcia, Italy!
They also have a beautiful new calendar.
Speaking of Benedictines, there is an album of Advent music available from the wonderful Benedictine Nuns in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
And they also have an album of Easter music and several others.
I want to include as well the superb Christmas music CDs produced by at the Church of St. John Cantius in Chicago which has a top notch choir. When I have Christmas music playing, I often circle back to these discs. Check out the parish website too, because Amazon might not have everything they have produced.
As a matter of fact, the day before I was to start my recent travels, I received a couple more discs from St. John Cantius, but I haven’t been able to listen to them yet.
There there is an outstanding disc from the only Catholic boy’s school choir in these USA, St. Paul’s at Harvard. More HERE
