Darkness to Light

In case you were wondering if my whole weekend was chair related..it wasn't! I managed to squeeze in a trip to Salisbury Cathedral which really is the most ridiculously beautiful building, particularly on a clear November night and when it's lit only by candle light.





The service is to mark the beginning of advent and the coming of Christmas and most of the service is sung by the cathedral choristers. On top of this the service starts in complete darkness and is then gradually lit by candles as the choir move slowly around the cathedral. It is magical, or to use another word spiritual!
