Make a joyful noise unto the Lord

During Advent we should all take extra time for prayer and contemplation. A beautiful way to do this is to participate in the liturgical hours of a monastery. However, most of us don’t live anywhere near a monastery and therefore can’t expose ourselves to this traditional form of prayer.
Now, due to the wonders of the InterWeb, we can! The Community of Maria Sedes Sapientiae , also known as the “Monks of Norcia”, are an order based in the birthplace of St. Benedict (and of whom I’ve written about before – here  and here ). They are making available recordings of their Vesper services . I have a good friend who is a priest of this order, and I can’t speak too highly of them – I would recommend that you check out their website and spend some time in prayer listening to their Vesper services.
