Monks and their devotional singing were not heard in Norcia for nearly two hundred years, until 1998 when Friar Cassian Folsom, an American who studied voice at Indiana University, founded a monastery there. Father Cassian recently joined us on “Preview!” to discuss the monks’ new album of Marian chant, Benedicta, which was recorded on location at the monastery. Benedicta includes chants that have not been previously recorded, and an original composition by the monks’ choirmaster.
