P.S. I forgot to say earlier how totally weird the Vienna Boys Choir performance was. Somehow I'd had the impression they still performed at a regular mass and visitors had to stand or sit in a special section, but it turns out the entire congregation was made up of either paying ticket members or people standing for free to hear the choir.

Due to the church's construction, no one could see the boys as they sang, and everyone involved in the mass - including the priest - looked bored and uninspired. It was really really weird. At the end of mass, during which they performed (and by "performed" i mean in a theatrical sense) communion and the whole works, the choirmaster led the boys down to sing in front of the crowd. There were maybe 15 of them, and they all looked supremely unhappy to be up so early on a Sunday morning. They sang one song, then filed out the door to their left. The end.

P.P.S. In case it wasn't clear from the p.s. above, my recommendation for the vienna boys choir is a sound "don't go". Just buy a record and play it on nice surround sound speakers. The real end. Good night!
