Tewkesbury Abbey 2

 

Had to wait until a wedding ceremony was concluded before looking around - so it was nice to sit and hear the organ music and the choir.

Sounds like you got great value from your Entrance Fee, Tom.
Tom Wilson: No fee, Ray - just a couple of quid for taking pics.
I love the decorative canopies... beautiful!
Tom Wilson: Fine decor, isn't it?
En couleur, c'est encore plus beau. Bel intérieur !
Tom Wilson: It certainly is, Martine - thank you.
I bet you enjoyed that moment Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed, Richard. It's a beautiful interior.

I remember the accoustics being good in there Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, they're excellent.
I saw a wonderful performance of Claudio Mntiverdi's Vespers performed here, as part of the Cheltenham music festival Tom. The acoustics are very good.
Tom Wilson: I can imagine it would have been wonderful.
It is very grand!
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - and interesting that it is now simply a parish church smile It was saved as such by the citizens of Tewkesbury who bought it from the Crown for £453 in about 1540, following the dissolution of the monasteries. That's equivalent to more than £2million today!
A very fine building isn't it. I always feel it is a bonus to go in such a place and music is being played or sung, that happened to us in Southwell Minster last year with a choir and musicians practising for a wedding in the afternoon, most people just stopped and listened.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Brian.
Beautiful. Must have another visit here
Tom Wilson: It's certainly worth a second look.
