News comes today from Wisques, France that the once great Benedictine Abbey of Saint Paul is changing hands from an old liberal group of monks whose average age is 75 to a brand new group of 18 monks (Solesmes Congregation) overflowing from the already packed nearby Abbey of Notre-Dame de Fontgombault, famous for celebrating holy Mass in the Extraordinary form of the Roman Rite with beautiful sacred music in a 'dead language.'
The Solesmes Congregation is famous for beautiful liturgy and is considered the reference for gregorian chant. Their Abbey in Oklahoma (Clear Creek Abbey), United States has been growing by leaps an bounds as well, so much so that an expansion was required.
