Could be a Victorian window but none the less quite pleasing
gutteridge: The church was built around 1874 I think Tiff.

I hope your lovely window doesn't get too dusty, Chad!
gutteridge: They have all been cleaned by the firm carrying ou the restoration.
I hope they don't break the window here, Chad, when they walk around with large poles to get the scaffolding in.... great music, soon again to be heard is my guess. How long do they need to restore the church?
gutteridge: Our choir sang this on one occasion, but obviously not as well. Scaffold poles must be a huge risk in a place like this Astrid. The work started after Easter and will be complete by Advent.
You could easily be one of those chaps, Chad. You can be proud of yourself!
gutteridge: We sing this piece once Ginnie, but nothing as good as this recording.

What a beautiful stained glass windows! It is interesting to see the monks and ministrants singing the motet (1885) by the Austrian composer 'Anton Bruckner'.
gutteridge: We had the privilege of singing this once on the occasion of a visiting Bishop.

Victorian stained glass is rarely my preferred option
gutteridge: Fussy devil.
I like that small section of window, almost reminds me of when I was a choir boy back in the 50's. Oh and a really good Bruckner item.
gutteridge: Isn’t it great Brian.

Beautiful windowidge. Yes, I like church music of this magnustude, also Gregorian.
gutteridge: I’ll go along with that.
It is good to thank the choir.
gutteridge: Absolutely Mary.
That is a fine window. I am not familiar with much of Bruckner's work but I like this
gutteridge: Yes, a very fine piece to accompany a fine window.

is this something you can sing? I'm hugely impressed by such skilled musicians. The stained glass is very clear.
gutteridge: Yes, we have been fortunate enough to have sung this.
