Nachopella

A good example of how much a cappella permeates every corner of popular culture, and sometimes in the most unexpected places, is the featuring of the music of Chanticleer in the just released Nacho Libre movie with Jack Black. Chanticleer's recordings of "Te Deum: Aerterna fac cum sanctis tuis", "Hieremiae Prophetae Lamentations" and "Te Deum: Aerterna fac cum sanctis tuis" are included in the sound track. Jack Black's character Friar Ignacio, a much-put-upon cook, lives in a monastery hence the use of a cappella chants.
