Longitude Lane was especially cool: a seventeenth-century stone-cobbled lane that runs exactly on the 79th parallel.
The final highlight of our short visit was an evening concert we attended at the First Scots Presbyterian Church, which hosts the annual Bach Festival of Charleston. We sat in the beautifully austere early nineteenth-century church and listened to an absolutely incredible performance of "Membra Jesu Nostri" (BuxWV 75) by Buxtehude. The stunning sounds of seventeenth-century music sung in the plain early-music style and played on period instruments formed the perfect culmination to our weekend encounter with history in Charleston.
