The nuns hope the album will help people 'find peace'

An order of Benedictine nuns has signed a major record deal with the company behind Lady Gaga, it has been revealed.

The Nuns of the Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation, from France, won a global search of more than 70 convents across Europe, the US and Africa.

The reclusive order, based near Avignon, were deemed to have the finest Gregorian Chant singers.

They have signed a deal with Decca Records, part of Universal Music, which counts Lady Gaga and U2 among its acts.

The nuns' ancient order dates back to the 6th Century and they follow a tradition of leading a hidden life behind closed doors.
