Another part of our tour took us through the St. Peter's Cemetery, which is where the Von Trapp family hid from the Nazis in the movie, The Sound of Music. It's also the oldest cemetery in Salzburg. If I remember correctly, our tour guide told us the bishop allows people to keep their family cemetery plots until there are no family members left tending to them, at which point they are sold to another family.
The most wonderful thing about Salzburg was hearing the kids sing in the cathedral. The cathedral itself is a beautiful Baroque construction with stunning frescoes inside. It was our first time in a European cathedral, and we were all just astonished by all the beauty.
The kids sounded like angels in there. The acoustics were amazing. Mrs. Jowers, the director, said the kids were amazingly responsive to her directions in the cathedrals, and we could all tell a difference in the dynamics when they were singing, as compared to how they sound in the local church where they usually perform. Here they are singing an Alleluia - I'm sorry I missed the very beginning of the song! Abbie is on the left, second row from the top, with glasses. It's hard to tell who she is in the video because she has her hair pulled back.
