Sounds of angelic choirs

What a beautiful church! There was a friendly welcoming priest. The acoustics in this church are unbelievable. We were told that anyone who sings in this church sounds like an angel. It was true. Our groups sang a song and it sounded heavenly. As we were leaving another group, who spoke a different language sang. It was just beautiful.

The birth place of Mary, is next to the Pools of Bethseda and along the Via Delrosa. this is a simple but beautiful church. A perfect place to stop for a quiet prayer and if you can sing, the acoustics are amazing!!! Also the Pools of Bethseda next door are very interesting.

According to ancient tradition, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was born in a grotto beneath the Church of Saint Anne. Mary's mother, and the grandmother of Jesus, was St Anne. The church was named in her memory. The Church is quite beautiful and has outstanding acoustics -- people often burst into song as an offering to Christ. St Anne's is in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City, at the beginning of the Via Dolorosa, marking the progress of Jesus to his death by crucifixion and resurrection after three days. St Anne's also adjoins the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the crippled man. If you follow the Stations of the Cross, it is worthwhile visiting this magnificent church as you start out.

This is an amazingly beautiful church. We were there as a group, and we were the only ones inside at the time. We were so moved that we sang a few hymns. Just beautiful with the acoustics!
