One Saturday a few months ago, a friend asked if I would like to accompany her
to a (free) concert at a monastery in Talbiyeh. Since I knew Talbiyeh rather

and, arguably, most beautiful neighborhood feature a monastery? To my delight, I
learned that not only is there a friary (not a monastery, as it turns out) on
Disraeli Street, but the acoustics in the chapel are extraordinary.
