  2. I would love to hear the sound in this cathedral! I sang in the Washington Cathedral when I was in high school and it was a powerful experience. The high ceilings let the sound rise up to touch the heavens and the stone amplified it all. Wish I had been with you to hear the music.

  3. Oh, Alexander, your photographs of Notre Dame are wonderful, wonderful. I agree! It’s a magical, magical place. What a gorgeous photo essay. You captured every nook and cranny. I especially love the sunset series. The sky is so blue. Not a dud in the batch!
    Bravo!!
