"[By] Dom David Nicholson, O.S.B., Monk of Mount Angel Abbey, Oregon, U.S.A."
"This volume follows, in natural sequence, the series: 'Liturgical Music in Benedictine Monasticism'. Although there are not a great number of monasteries of men and women in the Canterbury Communion which base their life on the Rule of St. Benedict, they are a witness to the monastic calling. Each Monastery was asked to explain its historical and liturgical 'modus vivendi', but in several cases, where I was not able to compile sufficient information I gathered this from 'The Benedictine and Cistercian Monastic Yearbook' (1990) edited by Rev. Dom Gordon Beattie, O.S.B., R.A.F., monk of Ampleforth Abbey". -- Intro.
