The Monastery was built starting in 1482 - an intriguing date for us New World People.  You can see where St. Teresa took confession.   We sang a revised version our sacred program ( Upon This Rock- Sobre esta Piedra) to include the Tomas Luis de Victoria mass Missa O quam gloriosum.  What a wonderful audience! Completely sold out. Included of course were the participants in the festival with whom he had worked and eaten a lovely 3 course lunch during the day - the most friendly and enthusiastic of listeners.  The landscape here looks exactly like Northern California.  It has to make you think how at home the Spanish must have felt when they arrived.  Everybody has been so nice - glad we have another day to have some more classes, and put together tutti pieces for the participants concert back at the Monastery tonight.
