It is the 12th century. Easter dawns along the Loire Valley of central France. A choirmaster has set to music the familiar story of the hesitant and mournful visit of the three Marys to the tomb of Christ. As the Easter sun rises, his play is performed in the church he loves and serves, the Abbey St. Benoit de Fleury. Over several centuries, similar versions appear at Easter services in many European and British churches. During the French Revolution the original Fleury manuscript is brought to the library at Orleans for safekeeping, where it is treasured to this day. Now, this inspiring medieval music drama is lovingly resurrected in a touching performance filmed at the place of its birth: the peaceful Romanesque abbey on the Loire. Featuring a talented cast of soloists and the choirmen of the Washington Cathedral, with costumes and props drawn from medieval art, the "Visit to the Sepulcher" melts away the centuries to reveal the simple beauty of Christianity's most sacred morning.
