Am enclosed order of Benedictine nuns is set to storm the charts after signing a deal with Universal Music, the world's leading record company. 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 are part of an ancient order which dates back to the 6th Century. They continue the tradition of leading a hidden life, literally behind closed doors. To remain 'secluded' to the outside world, any visitors, even family, must communicate with the sisters through a grill. Once vows have been taken to live in the Convent, the sisters remain there until their death. The Nuns' album will feature the most ancient forms of Gregorian Chant, which the sister's sing eight times a day, and was the first music ever to be written down.
