A Choral Surprise!

As we were leaving the square (more specifically La Place de la République, Arles, France), we saw this big tour group clowning around and getting their photo taken.

“That’s nice; they’re sure having a lot of fun,” we commented to each other.

We sauntered off down the “road,” thinking it was about time for an afternoon coffee and getting about a block away in our search for a café, when we suddenly heard this amazing choral music coming from behind us.

We turned around and zipped back, me pulling out my iPhone as fast as I could, and we captured most — not all — of the piece. The tour group wasn’t a tour group after all, it was a choir, and a very good one at that!

They appeared to be done, starting to step away, and I put my iPhone away to head out again, only to discover they had just decided to do another piece…

Alas, again, I missed the very beginning, but, oh well… I did my best. (Sorry…)

Jeff and I were thrilled with the unexpected musical treat, and hope you enjoy it, too!
