morning music and different lighting

The abbey on Monte Cassino was lit to make the most of the gold leaf decorations this morning. The occasion was the visit and participation in the mass of the choir from Westminster Abbey. I couldn't resist sneaking a few photos even though I had gone to hear the music ...

The music was superb, the mass not too long, and the sermon optimistic. I was surprised at how many empty seats there were. Surely an event such as this deserves more support from the local congregation? 

Today I am also grateful for choir music.

Thank you for sharing the photos of this beautiful Abbey. Perhaps the absent congregation was home preparing for the big game!
