Tune in Daily for the Divine Office from the Abbey of Le Barroux

I know we mentioned this back in December but given that the URL has changed, I wanted to remind readers of www.barrouxchant.com which (like the Benedictine Monks of Norcia) offers streaming audio of the chanted Divine Office from the Abbey of Le Barroux:

The monks of the Abbaye Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux stream their chanted Office each day as explained on their website. For those of us who do not live in European time zones, this project attempts to automatically record their hours and make them available for download.

You can also subscribe to the hours as a podcast.

(For those of you wondering about the above image. It is a simulated "oil painting" I made using the GIMP paint program, taken from a still of the monks of Le Barroux working in the fields outside their monastery. I always felt it would make a nice post card or framed print.)
