It's a now well-known story: When Universal UK placed ads in various religious publications encouraging monks
and sacred singers to submit demos for consideration of a major recording contract, word reached the monks of the Cistercian
Abbey Stift Heiligenkreuz in Vienna, who applied via a clip they had posted on YouTube. With their rich and evocative sound,
the monks were the easy favorites. Suddenly these very modern monks were poised to become an overnight sensation, seized on by widespread international media.
During these times of stress and global turmoil, this album is the ultimate in relaxation and stress relief -- the perfect antidote
to our fast-moving modern world. The power of chant is its timeless and universal appeal -- when people hear it, they love it. Listening to a few minutes of chant washes away the hectic outside world and transports the listener
to a more relaxed place. This is the balm for the busy life. From the Label
