Advent for Ephesus features sixteen tracks including traditional English and Latin hymns, polyphony, Gregorian chants, medieval harmonies, and one original work from the sisters themselves.  The record represents a rare and often forgotten approach - one that focuses on music celebrating the quiet, introspective anticipation of the Nativity that is the foundation of the Advent season, celebrating the four preceding Sundays leading up to Christmas. The album stood at the top of Billboard's Classical Traditional Chart for several weeks in a row, holding the #1 position heading into Christmas.
