The community of 23 nuns became the UK’s best-selling classical artist debut of 2020, more than 800 years after they were founded.

On their achievements, the Sisters said: ‘We couldn’t imagine the success. The real success is not to be on TV or on newspapers.

‘It’s to know that our singing is helping others and that’s the most important thing. We are not really people that others look at.’
