Coubaril Abbey of the Assumption, just south of Castries, easily accessible from the highway, is a special enough place by itself. Last Sunday, the stone-built church, which features a unique, jaw-dropping sea view from the inside, was the venue for the Christmas concert by The Three Tenors of Barbados.
The group of magnificent singers is a Caribbean version of the famous Three Tenors, but with a local flavour and sense of humour. With a careful selection of classical and modern pieces plus some Christmas evergreens, the Three Tenors of Barbados simply could not go wrong.
The audience who thoroughly enjoyed both the singing and the entertaining performance of the closing piece ‘O Sole Mio’ was after the concert invited to a tasty refreshments reception prepared by the tireless Benedictines.
Christmas preparations in St Lucia do not get much better than that!
