The Benedictine Nuns of le Barroux
The news from Avignon has been so unpleasant recently, here is a much more tranquil and almost other-worldly view of the department of Vaucluse, where two Benedictine abbeys were constructed in the 1970's and 1980's in the Romanesque style of architecture, in the town of le Barroux, not far from Avignon. In the video below the Benedictine nuns of the Abbey of Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation sing Adoro te devote, a Eucharistic hymn by Saint Thomas Aquinas.
