Not sure where to post this link - the article is about a closed order of Benedictine nuns in France allowing recordings to be made of their daily services. The article includes a link to the site where you can hear the singing

Not sure why you think its unreasonable dinahmo. Its not my thing but each to their own.

kittylester I haven't said anything about the subject matter being unreasonable. I'm not sure what you mean.

I'm not religious at all but I do like to visit abbeys and churches whilst on holiday and sometimes, if lucky, you can hear the monks or nuns singing. We went to one abbey to hear a sung service, sat at the back of the church and it the music was beautiful.

You have put it under AIBU, that is why.

I wondered why it was unreasonable too! Thanks for the link dinahmo, the music was beautiful.

Rosenoir Didn't realise what AIBU meant. I thought it was any other business or words to that effect. Now I know.

No problem Dinahmo; it just raised a smile! smile

Thank you. Its wonderful. My late husband and I brought together a collection of CDs for just this type of music. So calming.
