The music was splendid, in a beautiful setting. And the crypts are something to see.
Fantastic performance in a spectacular setting. The music was very moving, and it was well worth the ticket price!
A nice tour in the museum and the utterly strange capuchin crypt. The four person group of singers was good but not top. Especially the soprano who sang too loud and often a little too high.
The entire experience was unique,most interesting and very memorable.
