Alumni Part of Record Breaking Chant Album

December 7, 2017

Alumnus Fr. Zachary Akers, FSSP, other Fraternity of St. Peter priests, and some seminarians of Our Lady of Guadalupe seminary were highlighted by PBS Newshour this past week for their chart-topping musical album of Gregorian Chant, Requiem.

The album, which was recorded at the Fraternity’s seminary in Nebraska, features music usually sung during funeral Masses, with Fr. Akers directing the music for the album. Requiem spent 13 weeks at the top of classical music charts after its release — a feat unheard of for an album such as this.
