Grand Finale

The grand finale of my glorious weekend in Paris was a much-anticipated concert at the beautiful Ste. Chapelle. If you remember, I bought my tickets weeks ago, delighted that I'd hear Vivaldi's Four Seasons played here.
After queueing outside for a half-hour, the crowd filed into the candle-lit space. The ticketing website  disclaimed that because the stained glass in the chapel was being renovated, some of the windows might be covered. Not so this evening...they were all visible and shone with their majestic colors
Taking my seat, I watched the harpsichordist tune his instrument...
while the crowd waited, talking softly in this holy space and taking photos.
The musicians took the stage.
Let the concert begin!
