St Michael's in 1925 prior to the removal of pews. Shows how light and airy the soaring architecture of its columns impress.

Helen - I suspect you're having a lend of us, but is it really true? There are no references to John Thornton in Wiki's "Angry Birds" page. Lol Lol Lol Lol

Shameful that Thornton gets no credit but sadly his work is out of copyright. Lol But pictures don't lie. Look at the eyebrows, beak and attitude on that little birdy. Even the Twitter logo is suspiciously similar.

Rob has a similar drawing of this in the library collection but this appears to have been taken from a publication called 'The Builder' from June 1891 by Messrs Paley and Austin Architects.

Sadly Prof, many of those library images are just very small - they were just samples and obviously not intended for enlargement. Sad

The beauty of this forum - it brings me back home, and my childhood. We entered this beautiful, tall cathedral to the evensong. It was strewn with vases of flowers, candlelight and oil lights flickered, a soft melody of organ music greeted the ear. We were given or bought small programmes - as the crowd settled down the choirs began to sing, the crowd joined in and suddenly this beautiful church was alive with music and passion. A women’s choir was present, solo artists, songs like Greensleeves, solo organ music, more hymns and songs, but the highlight was when both choirs sang and chanted Monastery (Gregorian) music - that to me fitted in with this old medieval church. There was no sermon, just a short prayer at the end. The warmth and good feeling (not religion) was immense. I was about 10/11 years old. (thank you Rob)
