Blue Monday.


Last Thursday I showed some photo’s of the organ of King’s College Chapel in Cambridge. That was due to the letter O for that week.
Today I want to show more of the Chapel to King’s College of the University of Cambridge.  It is founded by King Henri 6th in the year 1441. and built in late Gothic style.  All the stained glass windows were made by Flamish masters during the years 1515 till 1531. The world wide famous choir is already more than 550 years old.

I could go on an on about the chapel because I have lots more photo’s but this is just  an impression.
This is the link if you want to learn more about King´s college and the chapel and take a virtual tour.http://www.kings.cam.ac.uk/chapel/

See that beautiful fan shaped ceiling,  the stained glass windows all around and the organ on the gate that separates the choir from the chapel.  It is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen.

Lieve Riet,

Wat een mooie foto's van Kings College! Heb je de Great Hall ook gezien? Die vind ik ook zo indrukwekkend.

Wij gaan van de zomer vast ook weer een dagje naar Oxford. Ik verheug mij er nu al op!

Fijne nieuwe week,

Het is echt een ongelooflijk mooi bouwwerk. En het interieur ZOOOO MOOOOOOIIIIII.
Het lijkt me dat je je heel klein voelt als je daar middenin staat.
Adembenemend is het.

Geniet van een heerlijke week,

liefs Josephine
