Caunes manages to put on some incredible entertainment. The latest has been a series of Baroque concerts held in one of the marble quarries, next to Chateau Villerambert on the outskirts of the village. The setting, while bizarre on one level added a haunting beauty to the music.
We walked from the car park to the quarry, wearing hard hats, and wondering whether the piles of marble rocks, chips, and slabs were securely placed.

After the concert, where Mark admitted he had fallen in love with the gorgeous mezzo soprano who also played the violin like an angel ( if angels were to play violins), we adjourned to the Chateau Villerambert for a wonderful buffet by moonlight.

It was another great night out in Caunes Minervois.
