Our second stop was in the breathtaking hillside medieval city of Assisi. Perfectly preserved as it was in the days of St. Frances, this remarkable city completely envelopes the visitor in history. Again, we were honoured to sing Mass in the great lower Basillica (yes, they actually have a newer basillica built over a magnificent older one; where the remains of St. Frances rest along with a great collection of relics from that era).  Our accompaniment was provided by an ancient wooden organ; a wonderful masterpiece for it's time if not slightly out of pitch with todays' musical sensibilities. But it was all marvelous.
