The Mystery of the Monks

After days of rain a sunny morning. The thread of the monastic life will recur. It's 08.41 and Orlando Gibbon's Second Service is playing.

The literature for Le Barroux says...

The Mystery of the Monks
The monks built Europe, but they did not do it intentioanlly.Their adventure is first of all, if not exclusively, an inner adventure, whose only motive is thirst. A thirst for the absoute. Thirst for another world, for truth and beauty.
