Product Description

CD Description

The Nuns of the Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation, from a remote region of France near Avignon, won a worldwide search to find the world's finest female singers of Gregorian Chant. The search took in over 70 convents, including communities as far afield as North America and Africa. The Nuns' album features the most ancient form of Gregorian Chant, which the sisters sing eight times a day, and was the first music ever to be written down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 22 Nov 2010
By Liz D
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The voices are beautiful and calming. Really helps to sooth away the stresses of the day. The music has been carefully chosen and the solo sections and different tempo of the chants, combined with the two belling ringing sessions gives the CD variety and the listener a feeling of having been on a restful and refreshing journey. Personally, I find the female voices more interesting than the tape I have of male Gregorian chants. I do love this CD and it is one that has, and will be played often. I would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelic voices 1 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Some people are surprised to find plainchant being sung by women. They shouldn't be. Plainchant has been - and is - sung in convents as well as monasteries since the 11th century. This particular recording is one of the best examples of plainchant sung by female voices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet Christmas time 2 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Just beautiful. The voices of the nuns will rock you into perfect peace and quiet. Just go get away from the ratrace, a glass of wine and this CD should help you on your way.

The bell ringing on it too is incredible.

A perfect Christmas present on its own, or its masculine counterpart (and sorry girls, both are fabulous)Spiritus Dei.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought. Music for the soul. 4 Jan 2011
By Dani
Format:Audio CD
After listening to one track of VOICES on radio four I wanted to hear the CD in its entirety. On receiving the CD of VOICES I immediately played it all and was not disappointed. The union of voices coupled with the purity of sound of the choir makes this CD extraordinary listening.

One can only wonder what it must be like to hear the Nuns' choir in the church at Avignon, or indeed to sit outside on a bench nearby on an early Sunday morning; perhaps at break of dawn with dew still upon the grass and the birds not quite awake!
