A group of Benedictine nuns in France signed a contract with Decca Records, the record label of the extravagant pop singer, Lady Gaga.

The nuns belonging to the Benedictine religious order who live isolated from the rest of the world, in a region of southern France, won a competition involving 20 monasteries in Europe, USA and Africa, which aimed to find the world’s finest female singers of Gregorian Chant.

The winners signed the contract with Decca Records head, Dickon Stainer, from behind a wooden grille, to avoid any intrusion into their daily lives.

The Reverend Mother Abbess, of the Abbaye de Notre Dame of l’Annonciation near Avignon, said: “We never sought this, it came looking for us. At first we were worried it would affect our cloistered life, so we asked St Joseph in prayer.

“Our prayers were answered, and we thought that this album would be a good thing if it touches people’s lives and helps them find peace.” Decca Records hopes to replicate the success of the Cistercian monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz, whose 2008 album “Chant: Music For Paradise ‘sold over a million copies.
