Church Visits - 2009 15/15

During 2009 I visited 15 churches and featured some of them occasionally on SC. in part.  This series will cover all of them, and for this series you will see that I have used a common theme of layout and presentation for each, which I hope you will enjoy, together with a short piece of sacred music that I hope you will find time to enjoy also.

And so to the final posting in this series, I have featured this church as a few seperate shots but this brings them together in one.  Also to finish the musical part of the series off I have chosen the Amen from probably the most famous piece of choral music ever written, Handels Messiah, I hope you agree it is a fitting end to this type of series.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I think your earlier comments meant that you did actually enjoy this series, at least i hope you did.
another great church! this one definitely has the look that I expect from small English churches smile
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely, and historic, church Charles, the one where the Bronte sisters father was the minister.

Looks like you had a nice day for your visit to Bronte country Brian
Brian Walbey: We had a lovely day Chris.
and a fine piece of music too to finish an excellent series Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, and the whole messiah is great to sing, I have had the good fortune to perform it twice.
I wonder if the last supper has been copied more times than the Mona Lisa?
Brian Walbey: You could well be right Chad, and of course it will always be in the artists imagination as to how it really looked.
Interesting series.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks John.
Nice presentation, Brian - what software did you use for it?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. The base editing was done in Photoshop CS3 but as was the compilation of the collage, and that goes for this whole series of 15 images, although the outside frame came from a freebie on a magazine CD I had years ago.
It's been quite a nice series Brian!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard, something totally different next week.

Gotta love that blue clock face, Brian. A wonderful series and, yes, a fitting end with Handel's Messiah!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I have had the great pleasure of taking part in two performances of Messiah, both were great experiences.
A fine church to end the series on Brian. A lovely collage again
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Janet.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, something completely different next week ? smile

A great series Brian and perfect music with it.
Churches to me are so soulful and every church is so much different.
Thank you for showing them.
Have a great weekend.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Astrid, and at some time during the last 20 years I have sung all 15 pieces of music featured here. I hope your weekend will be enjoyable even though Ginnie is far away at the moment.
