Churches and Music

One really great thing about living in Trumau is the proximity to Vienna of which we've begun to take advantage. Two days in a row now we've made the 20 - 30 minute drive into the city for beautiful Masses.

For the Feast of the Assumption of our Lady we heard Mass at the lovely baroque Peterskirche (below) with music by the great G. P. da Palestrina.

Today we heard Sunday Mass at the Stephensdom, the gothic cathedral in the center of the city, with organ music by, I think, Bach and Mendelssohn.
