A heavenly soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – written for a film set in a convent, and scored with some really unique touches! Given the spiritual nature of the film, Morricone uses this spooky chorus – singing in a staccato style at first, but then opening up in a mode that's almost a Latinized version of the Swingle Singers! The album's got a fantastic track called "Veni Sancte Spiritus" that starts out slow and spooky, then gets funky with the chorus over the top – but other tracks have a similar juxtaposition too, bringing together darkly spiritual elements with some really redemptive touches – and some very weird funky moments! Titles include "Stabat Mater", "Dies Irae", "Lauda Sion", "Veni Sancte Spiritus", and "Victima Paschali Laudes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
