We go to church on most Sundays.
Both my husband and I have been raised as Roman-Catholics, and after a massive rebellion phase, we came back to church when we were grown up. I think Catholicism is a large part of the culture and socialization here in Austria. My children can take it or leave it when they are old enough to decide, but I feel they can never make an informed decision, if they don’t know it. For now they like going, their Kindergarten friends attend too and it gives them a sense of community that is really nice to experience.
What I most enjoyed in church as a child (and still do, if I am truthful) is the music. Pieces written for the church include some of the greatest works of classical music, the church always having been a grand patron of the arts. My favorite mass is the “Coronation Mass in C-Major” by W.A. Mozart.
Enjoy the Agnus Dei sung by Kathleen Battle under Herbert von Karajan, while you read through many great posts that were to be found last week in Perfumeland:
Scentless Sensibilities enchants us with another short story inspired by an Amouage scent (my second favorite – Epic Woman, my favorite is Lyric Woman that I reviewed this week). It is really worth it sitting down and letting yourself be led into the wonderland of words Tarleisio conjures up.
Dee asks an interesting question: Do you smell other people’s Perfumes out in the wild? Head on over to Beauty on the Outside to read “Nose about Town”.
Victoria of EauMG wrote a lovely review of L’Artisan’s Drole de rose and invites us to hug her. 😉
Persolaise celebrates his blog’s one year anniversary with a special giveaway. Be sure to head on over to congratulate him and participate in the giveaway, if you haven’t already!
And finally I want to mention Suzanne’s Perfume Journal again. This week she wrote about Malle’s Portrait of a Lady. I like her interesting take a lot.
What about your Sunday? What are you up to?
Enjoy your day!
