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 composed 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 back in the birthplace of St. Benedict and The Monks of Norcia were born.  An American who studied voice at the venerable Indiana University before joining the monastery, Fr. Cassian explains, "Music is essential to the monastic life… chant is part of the air we breathe."
