Here is a journey inside of Notre Dame Cathedral.  Its opulence, tall gothic arches, gold gilt details and stained glass are truly humbling. I went there yesterday evening to hear a concert of sacred vocal music from the Renaissance, Ave Maria.  The candles glowed as several hundred guests gathered in the cathedral and then sat silently as the most beautiful voices began gently filling the air around us.  The sound came from everywhere, echoing in the tallest arches and raining down.  It sounded as though a thousand voices were singing.  And then the choir appeared, only 25 singers, of all ages, the texture of the a cappella voices weaving an ancient tapestry of music around us.  Click here to be washed in these melodic voices.
