Taking my first official visitor to Carcassonne today, we came across one of those experiences that just make the day.
It was cold, windy and fairly damp, and we took refuge in the St Nazaire Basilica. Apart from the outstandingly beautiful 13th and 14th century rose windows, we were thrilled to discover the Doros choir. We sat, mesmerised . Warmed by the experience we continued with our touristy visit to the cite, found a lovely place for lunch and consumed a small carafe of red and revelled in the delight of these men's amazing voices.
Returning to Caunes, I looked up the choir's details and came across this link. It is of the choir some months ago, but captures exactly the experience that Sue and I had today, listening to the voices and gazing around us at the beautiful glass.
