Marche de Noel
Our local friend, Christine Gentou, had assembled her chorale group in the ruins of the ancient Abbey and gave a short concert of American gospel hymns and a few Christmas carols. As you can see, it was freezing cold in the stone ruins, but the acoustics were fabulous despite no roof and only partial walls. I can only imagine how wonderful the Benedictine monks' chanting must have sounded in this space in the 10th century when the Abbey was built.
The only things missing Saturday were those darn dangling Santas...remember them from last year??
