  • Description: On June 2, De Montfort Music together with Decca Classics/Universal Music Classics will release BENEDICTA: Marian Chant from Norcia, the major label debut from The Monks of Norcia. Based in Norcia, Italy, the community of the Benedictine Monks of Norcia is comprised of 18 men, half American citizens and the other half a diverse group of men from all over the world representing a variety of cultural backgrounds. Monks and their devotional singing were not heard in Norcia for nearly 200 years, until 1998 when Fr. Cassian Folsom, Prior, settled with his community in the monastery located on the ancient ruins of the birth-home of St. Benedict and his sister St. Scholastica, thus also becoming the site where The Monks of Norcia were born. An American who was admitted to and studied at the highly competitive world-renowned voice program at Indiana University before joining the monastery, Fr. Cassian explains, "Music is essential to the monastic life… chant is part of the air we breathe."
