Writers Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett’s novel Good Omens, a hilarious and poignant take on the Apocalypse, is now a miniseries currently streaming on Amazon Prime. In the book and the live-action adaptation, a group of Satanic nuns—the Chattering Order of St. Beryl—attempts to position the baby Antichrist into a place where he can grow into his power… with chucklelicious results.
Pulling inspiration from the book, an a capella group taking the name of the Chattering Order of St. Beryl has been making comedic waves everywhere from America’s Got Talent to SXSW, bringing their talent in performing covers of Queen songs as well as original content. In the course of their performances, they’ve even gotten the blessing of Mr. Gaiman himself.
We recently caught up with Sister Grace Voluble, one of the group’s members, who was gracious enough to tell us where she gets her inspiration for creating songs about and for the Antichrist, as well as working with her order to make those songs suitable for human consumption.
You can watch Good Omens now on Amazon Prime. And for more Chattering Order goodness, check out the video for their song “Brand New Baby Smell”!
