REVIEW: Benedictine nuns of Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l’Annonciation

Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation I have often mentioned that I think Gregorian chant sung by women only is ethereally beautiful.  Listening to the new chant disk by the Benedictine nuns of Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l’Annonciation has confirmed my view.

The Benedictine nuns of the sister abbey of the male monastery at La Barroux in France near Avignon have produced a stunning collection of chants.

Rather than try to describe their chant and the sound of the bells of their monastery, listen to a few little samples I stitched together.   Then order the disk.   AMAZON UK LINK HERE.

This would be a great stocking stuffer, especially for girls.

    Simply gorgeous. Simple transcendence is sorely lacking in our hyper world.

    I’ve ordered these as my gift for Priests this Christmas!
    Simply Lovely…their short video gives a great explanation of their “work”.
