NPR reports on The Requiem Mass for Louis XVI

Elena-Marie has posted this NPR gem on her blogsite Tea at Trianon. The links on her site will direct you to a sound recording of the radio article.

In expected less than favorable way the on scene reporter ELEANOR BEARDSLEY says, "The mass is in Latin. The priest swings a censer of incense on a chain.

I only wish I were being interviewed.

Dieu le Roy!
