Benedictine Monks of St. Michael's

The Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo De Silos became famous outside of religious circles in the mid-'90s when a recording of their liturgical Gregorian chants unexpectedly climbed to the top of U.S. pop charts. Back around the 11th century, the Spanish abbey began switching over from Hispanic liturgical melodies to the Roman liturgy's Gregorian melodies. The Gregorian chant has been used in Benedictine churches since, with the exception of a few decades in the 1800s.
