Flipping through old pictures

A crucifix - found in the Thomaskirche, Leipzig, Germany, summer 2011.  This was the church for which Bach composed some of his greatest music.  We were there one afternoon and was treated to an impromptu concert when one of the church organists came in to practice.  All of us who were milling around the church sat in the pews and listened as the great organ filled the church with beautiful sounds.  It was one of a dozen or more unplanned treats we experienced while on our travels through Austria, Germany and England.
