Featured in the group, “For the Love of Jesus” on 24 August 2011, in "The World As We See It Or As We Missed It! on 31 March 2013 and in “Art & Dis” on 31 January 2016
I have chosen the North facing facade of the Preston England Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (situated near Chorley, Lancashire, England) late one afternoon in August, when the sun’s rays caught the spire and the statue of the Angel to illustrate the second verse of “Jerusalem”, a well loved hymn, which is almost akin to a second National Anthem here, in England. Camera details:- Canon PowerShot S3 IS, Auto

Words: William Blake (circa 1804)
Music: Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry (1848-1918)

The hymn, which is in the public domain, was orchestrated at a later date by Sir Edward Elgar. It is traditionally sung as the final number by the flag waving audience at the last of the Promenade Concerts held annually in the Royal Albert Hall, London, but also at other venues in various parts of the U.K.

Enjoy the hymn Jerusalem from The Last Night of the Proms 2011 in HD, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Edward Gardner
