We drove over this afternoon from Aix-les-bains to Puy-en-Velay where we are staying, for our concert (Le Mystere) tonight at St. Paulien for the prestigious Festival de la Chaise Dieu. Lots of people who were here the last time we were, 3 years ago, and were very appreciative. Our very serious sacred program is topped off ( if the people want an encore) by Brian's arrangement of Swing Down Chariot which is a big crowd-pleaser. The Deputy Mayor of St. Paulien hosted a little champagne toast afterwards. Tomorrow 11 hours in the bus to Germany.
