Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    (929- )
    Born in Santo Domingo de Silos, Spain
    Named for Saint Dominic of Silos
    Began performing Gregorian chants in the 11th century
    Recorded the best-selling albums 'Chant' and 'Chant II'
    It took a millennium before they recorded their debut album.
    'Chant' was first released in 1973 but did not become a best seller until two decades later.
    Chanting can get repetitious after a while.
    Some people use their CD as make-out music, which is probably not what the monks intended.
    Some groups break up if they cannot find success in a year; not these guys!
    Chant sold 6 million copies worldwide, making it one of the all-time best-selling classical albums.
    Chanting can be very soothing.
    They also do some religious stuff in addition to singing.
