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
