As chapel organist and vocalist for the Mission Inn since the hotel re-opened in 1993, Linda Corbitt has played and sung for hundreds of weddings in the St. Francis Chapel. Numerous brides have requested a CD to have as a keepsake of their wedding at the Inn. The music that is recorded on this CD includes some of their most requested favorites. It is not, however, a "Wedding CD," but includes a collection of classical favorites that will appeal to anyone who has visited the Historic Mission Inn.

This CD also contains a special recording of "A Perfect Day" composed by Carrie Jacobs-Bond. The song was written by Miss Jacobs -Bond while visiting the Mission Inn, where she was a frequent guest. The song was very successful, selling over eight million copies as sheet music and five million copies as a record, a phenomenal achievement for 1910. Even today the song is a favorite of visitors to the Mission Inn and other music lovers.

A Perfect Day
When you come to the end of a Perfect Day
And you sit alone with your thought
While the chimes ring out with a carol gay
For the joy that the day has brought.
Do you think what the end of a Perfect Day
Can mean to a tired heart
When the sun goes down with a flaming ray
and the dear friends have to part?
--Carrie Jacobs-Bond, 1909
