Across the street from the High Commission for Trinity And Tobago is St. Matthew's Anglican Church. It's a magnificent building of stained glass windows, a soaring sanctuary, and a side chapel. The church was built during 1929 and 1930, and is an example of English ecclesiastical architecture. While I was inside, recorded choir music was playing in the sanctuary.
I love the stained glass and arches!ReplyDelete
sturdy and simple. recorded music, of course! passively repels vagrants i betReplyDelete

If I was going to choose a church, this is it! Gorgeous and the stained-glass windows are some of the nicest I've seen. This is what a church should look like in my humble opinion. :)ReplyDelete

It is always nice to hear music in a church, it adds something extra to it.ReplyDelete
Love those windows and the music must have made it extra special being in there!ReplyDelete
There was a lot of building going on in the early 1930s, wasn't there? These churches seem to generally date from this period.ReplyDelete
