The Singing Nun - Soeur Sourire

The Singing Nun
•    Anthology of early 1960s recordings by Jeannine DekkersSoeur Sourire ("Sister Smile"), often better known simply as The Singing Nun, a member of the Dominican order in Belgium who turned the pop world upside down in 1962 when her song Dominique  soared to the top of the Billboard chart in America and became an international hit. Her album - featured here in its entirety - caught the mood of the time and sold almost 2 million copies and the programme of 20 songs is augmented by two moving religious organ pieces by the French composer Olivier Messiaen, performed by Messiaen himself on the organ of the Church of the Holy Trinity in Paris in 1956.

•    Such was the success of the record, and much to the dismay of Dekkers, a fictionalised film of her life "The Singing Nun" was made by MGM in 1965 starring Debbie Reynolds.

•    Dekkers was a fan of Elvis Presley and a Christian far ahead of her time.

•    Her struggles and her regrettable demise are chronicled in Stijn Coninx's 2009 biopic "Soeur Sourire"
