Chanting at the charts

This morning's Telegraph website is offering a free mp3 from the Cistercian Monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz.

They share a label with Amy Winehouse, and the paper's Peter Culshaw asked Father Carl to have a listen to her record:

"For 10 minutes I liked it, but when I read the lyrics I thought it was sad. I would like to invite her here - I feel sympathetic to people like her. She could stay a week or two and discuss the big questions of life - faith might be an answer for her."

They do make their own wine, so it's not impossible.
