Singing Nuns: The enduring beauty of Gregorian chant

Reclusive Nuns Sign Major Record Contract


A group of nuns from a remote region of France has signed a major record deal after winning a worldwide search to find the world's finest female singers of Gregorian chant.

The nuns of the Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation beat over 70 convents across the globe and their debut album 'Voices - Chant from Avignon', will be released in November.

Singing nuns celebrated once again. An order founded in the 6th century.
