Gregorian chant at Sant' Antimo on Easter Monday?

I will be heading into Tuscany on Easter Monday and would be very interested in hearing the monks doing Gregorian chant at the Monastery of Sant' Antimo near Montalcino. I see the schedule online, but wonder will they be doing it this day because it is a holiday? Does any know, or know who I can contact? I don't want to head there and find out they aren't there.

Well, it's a *religious* holiday, so the monks wouldn't take the day off! However, they do follow a different schedule. On the abbey's Italian site (but not on the English site), they have the service schedules for the Easter season:

That is, Lauds at 7:30 AM, Mass at 9:30 AM, and Vespers at 6:30 PM.
