Sunday Morning in the City
Christmastime in Vienna


Michaeler Durchhaus
On the morning of
the first Sunday in Advent,
the sky hidden behind high fog and snow clouds,
a father and child walk on Michaelerplatz past
the passage way leading to Habsburgergasse

A Christmas tree
in the Michaeler Durchhaus

St. Augustine's Church
The church already filled to the last pew
and high mass with a performance
of Antonín Dvořák's Mass in D major will
commence any moment

  4. Merisi, I marvel at the quiet elegance of your first photograph and then try to imagine the beautiful music filling the church you show in the next picture. Isn't this a fine time of the year?
