Monks of Heiligenkreuz to Sing in St. Peter's Basilica

On Thursday 19 November 2009, 5 pm, the Cistercian Monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz, Austria, will sing the Gregorian Chant for the Solemn Holy Mass celebrated in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican by the Archpriest of this Basilica, His Eminence Card. Angelo Comastri. This will occur in the context of the 8th International Festival of Sacred Music and Art in Rome, the programme of which you can see here. The monks of Heiligenkreuz are, of course, well known to NLM readers, precisely for their chant (cf. e.g. here) and their celebration of the Ordinary Form in a hermeneutic of continuity (cf. e.g. here or here).
