I think (Choral-)Schola's originally were male groups exclusively, and that women haven't participated until quite recently. This quote from WIKI seems to confirm that:

A Choralschola, known simply as schola, is a choir for singing Gregorian chant or plainsong. It consists traditionally of only men, but more recent groups sometimes also include female voices.

I'm sure, when I heard lady's voices on the CD I didn't like above, the one from Pontigny,  it was in polyphonic music I think. However, it would be interesting to hear that LP to see what the women do.
