CADENCE & CONTINUO

Florence, Italy 2009

In October 2009, 34 of us went to Florence in Italy.  We were not able to arrange too many places to sing, but we did sing at Mass in the Anglican church of St Mark's.  We also sang in San Lorenzo (those people who found the right entrance that is!), in the Duomo (cathedral) and on the Ponte Vecchio.
