Music for this picture:Hammerschmidt: Machet die Tore weit
along the Southern Banks
the lanterns were in glowing
the plates laid fine in ranks
St. Paul’s cathedral’s light
shone through the modern buildings
I walked the banks this night
and watched the lighted gildings.

The citizens of either town won’t like to hear it but I find that Hereford and Worcester are very similar.
Both cathedrals are placed finely near rivers and you can walk on the banks to have such fine views, especially when the underbrush is cut away like this.

Long the Night (arr. Massey) — Hereford Cathedral Choir
Passing Worcester twice a day on my journey to Hereford I realized that you’ve got a splendid view on the town from the train. I missed this view on the first journey so made sure to catch it on the way back.
Still I should add that the weather was perfect for this day, I managed to climb Hereford and Worcester Cathedral in one day and the views were amazing. I underlaid some textures by shadowhouse creations to give it a vintage look.
Music for this picture:Worcester Cathedral Choir- Evening Hymn Balfour Gardiner
Gloucester’s Cathedral is one of my favourite in England, though I admit it’s hard to make a decision. The music for this picture is something special. HAve you ever heard of Trond Kverno? No? Then listen to his “Ave Maris Stella”. When I attended Evensong (which is always worth doing) there was a choir from Oslo, Norway visiting and performed the Evensong with some of his pieces.
Is it a drawing or did my ink crystallize when I finished this piece of art? You decide and make up your mind. Whatever it may be the focus is laid on the illuminated cupola while the northern entrance is of different colour and function.It’s too sad that you must not take any photos inside!
