Monastic chant

Chanting the offices

Chanting the Offices of Vigils, Lauds, Sext, and Vespers gives a rhythm to each day.  Our liturgy is inspired from Gregorian chant, and springs forth from the Eucharist and from silent prayer.  Going back to the sources of Gregorian chant and from ancient Church tradition, we want our liturgy to be at the service of the Word of God and to help us mediate it throughout the whole day.  

I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Psalm 12

Through these a capella chants in honor of the Virgin Mary, the sisters give us a taste of their contemplative liturgy where everything is ordered to silence, prayer, adoration and to praise God who is One, and thrice Holy.  The various repertoires that the sisters chose for their first CD come from both Ancient times and the present.  You will find chants from the Carthusian tradition (order of Carthusians), pieces from Spanish tradition (Mozarabe chant) and from Gregorian chant, as well as a magnificent piece from Saint Hildegard of Bingen.  The CD is completed with a Basque-county chant sung with many voices.  

Second CD


The songs of this album, composed and interpreted by the sisters, put into music the Word of God and the prayers of the saints. These compositions are the fruit of a life consecrated to prayer. These songs, sung with one or several voices and accompanied by guitar, flute and violin, lead us to praise, meditation and silence. They help us lift up our souls to God and to contemplate him.
