We just poked our head in while the singers were warming up before a service and wandered by the windows in the balcony. They are impressive—and seriously in need of restoration. In fact one has been removed and they are planning a film to document...More

The exterior of the church is a masterpiece, but the inside is exquisite. When you see the oak stair case, the marvelous lantern-like light fixtures, and the angels everywhere, you are overwhelmed. A friend said he thought he was in heaven. The sculptures are perfect....More
