Sanctuary is a musical trio based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. They have established a unique form of contemporary music that is rich, intense and lyrical. Much of their music is based on Gregorian chant but that is merely a point of departure –they transcend these ancient materials using improvisation, contemporary music and extended techniques, to create a new form of contemplative plainsong for the 21st century.

"Completely addictive... this is perfect chill-out music whose subtle atmospherics and unashamed quest for beauty make it far more compelling than such a description normally implies"
