incense and religious singing (cantus gregorianus)

By bliba  
in the Milan Cathedral .......incense and religious singing cantus gregorianus

It has the most statues.
They say there are more statues on this gothic-style cathedral than any other building in the world. There are 3,400 statues, 135 gargoyles and 700 figures that decorate Milan Duomo! Climb the stairs or take the lift to the rooftop to fully appreciate the architecture of the most renowned silhouette in the city. From the terrazza youĂ‚’ll see breathtaking views across Milan and, on clear days, the snow-capped peaks of the Alps. You can also see the famous Madonnina, the gold-colored statue of Mary that stands on the cathedralĂ‚’s highest spire.

thanks for looking

The light catching the candles, steps, smoke; the timing for the swinging burner; the sense of dark, mysterious space... This is superbly atmospheric.

This is absolutely superb, Ollie. That small oasis of light surrounded by the semi-darkness, revealing just the right amount of detail.

My memory, from 50 years ago, is of smoke drifting from a candle at the funeral of a teenager.

How odd that my mind links this, from the pomp of an Italiam cathedral, with a provincial English church...
