Great episode! I love Earl Hammond's character in this recording!

Honore de Balzac's tale of the French Revolution, when Robespierre held Paris in his bloody grip. A priest and his attendant nun hold secret masses for private clients, under threat of the guillotine should they be found out. An enigmatic stranger appears to offer them immunity in return for their services, though he claims he is himself beyond hope of redemption.
