EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning photograph, taken by Eric de Mare between 1945 and 1980, captures the awe-inspiring interior of King's College Chapel in Cambridge. The image showcases the grandeur of the chapel's architecture, with the rib vaulting of the ceiling gracefully supporting the weight of the building. However, the true centerpiece of the photograph is the magnificent organ, which stands proudly on the screen that divides the chapel and ante-chapel. Built in 1605, the organ case was designed by Chapman and Hartop, with the organ itself undergoing numerous expansions and improvements over the centuries. The organ's intricate carvings and ornate details are a testament to the craftsmanship of its creators, and its dominant presence in the photograph adds an extra layer of depth and complexity to the image. The organ's pipes, which are not visible in this photograph, are a source of great pride for King's College, having been played by some of the most renowned organists in history, including the famous broadcasts of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. The photograph also serves as a reminder of the rich history of King's College Chapel, which has been a place of worship and learning for over 500 years. The chapel's stunning architecture, intricate details, and beautiful acoustics continue to inspire visitors and musicians alike, making it a true gem of Cambridge and a must-see destination for anyone interested in history, music, or architecture.
