This album presents music for the Roman Catholic service called Benediction.
The exact date of issue is unknown. What we do know, is that ‘We Sing At Benediction’ must have been recorded and issued in 1962.  According to the ‘Catalog of Copyright Entries’ of the U.S. Copyright Office (Library of Congress, Washington D.C.), the copyright on the ‘recording script’ – owned by ‘Joseph Rottura & Hanover Music Corp.’ – was registered at February 7, 1962. Another proof for a date of issue in 1962 can be found in the December 16, 1961 issue of Cash Box magazine. In an article called ‘Stafford Disk Dates For Various Labels’, we read about this album:  ‘Miss Stafford’s fourth album (to be released in 1962, ed.) will be devoted to religious music. Called, “We Sing At Benediction,” this album is another in the series conceived by Weston and Joseph Rottura for Corinthian Records’.
