Once in a lifetime

Selected and approved for Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris France. What an honor and what an opportunity. Probably a once-in-a-lifetime chance for you to sing in this cathedral.

Some historical points to ponder:

1. construction started in 1163, it was not completed until roughly 180 years later in about 1345. That makes the place 660 years old.

2. Crusaders prayed there before leaving on their holy wars, and polyphonic music developed in the cathedral.

3. Napoléon crowned himself emperor there.

4. A UAB choir will sing a thirty minute concert there on Wednesday, May 11, 2005 at 11:00 a.m.
