St. Cecilia's Cincinnati
I had occasion to visit St. Cecilia's Church in Cincinnati, OH and I was truly struck by the glorious window in the Choir loft. This window depicts the whole company of Heaven praising Christ, who is enthroned as King. What struck me the most was the action in the window. The angels are singing (with mouths wide open), playing instruments of all types and the colors were so vibrant!
I took another one of a frame that is not in this picture (It's a huge window!) of an Angel playing a virginal.
It made me wish I had wings so I could suspend myself in the middle of the church to get a straight on shot. What you see here is the view from the Organist's bench.
