Set up show in Monchskiche

At a wonderful Cathedral we set up the museum show today. it was in Salzwedel at Monchskiche. The exhibition is in a beautiful room with vaulted ceilings and floor crypts with ancient typography upon them. The opening is tomorrow with a concert by Shelia Swift, (No relation to Taylor) this museum was formerly a church built in 1280, or rather was first mentioned in a document at that time as a monastery. It was converted to a Protestant interior in 1581 and graced with an altarpiece by Lucas Cranach the younger of a Latin teaching of Martin Luther referencing workers in the Lords Vinyard. Several discoveries were made in the late 1800s of painted masks, and murals including one of St. Gregory and Mary.
