From the smallest village to the largest city, the haunting sounds of church bells permeate the air. Nowhere do they dominate the scene more poignantly than in the picturesque city of San Miguel de Allende where the beautiful cathedral rises imposingly at the edge of the central plaza.
Dedicated to the members of the Tulane University Band of 1959-1960.
