Each California mission has its own story, according to where it is, and who may have tepped forward to protect it.  They have all suffered through earthquakes, fires, and general abandoment.  The state in which we find them today varies according to the community around them.  The Mission San Jose is a loving and authentic ground up restoration, supported by Catholic families in the E. Bay.  We performed there this afternoon, preceded by LAB XV ( which got to sing in the sunlight), for an audience of fans of ours, devotees of this mission, and people who had come from far and wide to see us in this repertoire.
