Work and Pray:
Living the Psalms with the Nuns of Regina Laudis
The Benedictine nuns of Regina Laudis, living in simple and secluded
devotion in Bethlehem, Connecticut, bear witness to the power of
music --and especially the Psalms -- to act upon and within individual
and collective memories. The viewer enters a world of spiritual
suppleness and lofty melodies, a world whose timeless beauty offers
a retreat for the troubled contemporary spirit.
