Notes & Reviews:

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 will feature 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. The nuns' album, Voices - Chant from Avignon, was intended for release before the Pope's visit to Britain in September, but will now be released in November.

The Independent
Decca searched high and low (70 convents across several continents) for the female equivalent of successful recent releases by the Priests and sundry chanting monks, before settling upon the Benedictine nuns of Abbaye Notre Dame de L'Annonciation, near Avignon.
