'Faith might be the answer for her' say musical monks
A 72-strong group of singing monks have invited Amy Winehouse to join them in a bid to help sort out her personal difficulties.
Based in Vienna, the Cistercian Monks Of Stift Heiligenkreuz recently scored a Number One album of Gregorian chants in Austria.
Like Winehouse, they are signed to Universal Records.
The Daily Telegraph reports that a record company representative gave them a copy of Winehouse‘s 2006 album ‘Back To Black’ – but it didn’t go down too well.
“For ten minutes I liked it,” said Brother Johannes Paul Chavanne. “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.”
Despite singing songs from the seventh century, the monks were keen to show they’ve embraced modern living.
“Johannes, 25, is is a thoroughly modern monk, and has a computer and internet in his cell,” they explained.
