The Monks Of Saint-Benoit Abbey: Bio

The Benedictine monastery of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac was founded in 1912 in Southeastern Quebec by the French abbey of Saint Wandrille, part of the Saint Pierre de Solesmes congregation. As spiritual descendants of Saint Benedict, further drawing their inspiration from Dom Prosper Gueranger, the monks of Saint-Benoit approach the Liturgy with the greatest of care. As do the monks of Solesmes, they pay special attention to the way prayer is sung in the incomparable tradition of Gregorian chant. By their teaching, their recordings and, especially, by the example they have set for more than 60 years in French Canada, the monks of Saint-Benoit have been the most dynamic proponents of the Solesmes' style of chanting over the past century.

The Benedictine monastery of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac was founded in 1912 in Southeastern Quebec by the French abbey of Saint Wandrille, part of the Saint Pierre de Solesmes congregation. By their teaching, their recordings and, especially, by the example they have set for more than 75 years, the monks of Saint-Benoit Abbey have been the most dynamic proponents of the Solesmes' style of chanting started a century ago. After having launched a new edition of Cantus Mariales: Medieval Sacred Chants to the Virgin Mary almost 15 years after his first release, Analekta is proud to offer reissue Pax, a truly timely gift in our days and age, a message standing at the very heart of the Benedictine monks' motto.
