Hi everyone,

Many thanks for your kind c+c on my last upload. I thought perhaps it might raise a smile...

Today is one of the record shots I took of the actual rededication part of the service for the cleaned and refurnished shrine. The tapestry, which was designed by Ursula Benker-Schirmer and was made partly in Germany and partly at West Dean College, near Chichester, was taken down and cleaned. The icon of St Richard by the Russian icon painter Sergei Fyodorov and his statue were moved to the pillars between the shrine and the Lady Chapel. All the other furniture has been replaced with stricking new cast aluminium kneelers, candle stands, crosses and so on by the artist Jonathan Clarke .
I like it, though, as with all changes, there are those who do and those who don't.

I hope you enjoy.

All the best,

James

This has a wonderful sense of occasion - the symmetry suits the solemnity.

You had the perfect viewpoint to record this historic event, I'm sure there are many mixed feelings in the congregation, so many don't like change, especially of this magnitude that you've descibed so well!
