Ordering Information

All of the CDs listed on this page (with the exception of "A Child is Born") are produced in Italy. We're hoping to put out American editions of these CDs at some point in the future, with English translations of the lyrics included in the booklet, but this may take some time because of our backlog of other projects.

The CDs are non-commercial, i.e. distributed on the basis of a free-will offering, rather than for a fixed price. They are produced in Italy, so one should consider the shipping costs as well when making an offering.

You can order the CDs from the website of our Italian publishing house:

http://www.casamarianaeditrice.info/come_ordinare.html

When filling out the form, you’ll have to decipher the Italian as follows:

  • Nome = first name
  • Cognome = surname/last name
  • Indirizzo = address
  • C.A.P. = the equivalent of a ZIP Code
  • Citta’ = City/town (You should insert your State here as well if from the U.S., plus your country)
  • TITOLO DEL LIBRO O CD = Title of the book or CD
  • Recapito telefonico = Telephone number
  • After typing the visual code numbers into the box, you can press “Invia”, which means “Enter”, or press “Reset” if you need a new code.

At the same link, you will also find the phone number (the country code for Italy if calling from the U.S.A. is 39; but there is no guarantee that the person who answers will speak English well), postal address and email address of the publishing house. As for the offering, you might consider an international bank check or money order (make sure it’s something that can be cashed or deposited in Italy). Not all of the CDs listed on this page are listed on their site, but all of them should be available. Some of the CDs were recorded by our friars, others by the sisters, still others by the Poor Clares of the Immaculate.
