"not the bells of Sainte Trinité"

In case anyone was wondering, this church referenced in the new charity collaboration "Stranded" is a real place, which was a repository of amazing Haitian art that has been destroyed forever. Some pics of the murals. The Anglican cathedral also housed a well known music school, "École de Musique Sainte Trinité," which U2-friend Wyclef Jean worked with to create the Youth Orchestra of Haiti.

Here is a video showing the rubble. The sight of the bells (near the end) is particularly affecting, even if you don't know the lyrics.
