Whispered hopes of fear and desire,
fear and guilt and joy winged airs among the stone,
deep from earth, now holding the sky light,
pillars of tree, made now in stone.
This is a view of part of the interior of the church of St Peter, better known the world over as York Minster.
Though we see chairs here now, it used to be a vast open space, where people stood and when not in use for services, it would be used by local traders as a market mart, alongside the power struggles of local, national and international politics.
If you are lucky enough, look out for this choir,The Sixteen here at the Minster or at one of their other venues and hear how these old builders built for sound as well as vision.
Converted into black and white and best viewed large.
