Tewkesbury Abbey - Part 2 - Inside 8/15

This beautiful area of ceiling is just outside the Quire/Chancel area as the Nave reaches the Rood Screen entry into the former.

 

Ray posted a great video of Ella Fitzgerald singing Nessun Dorma yesterday, I came across this one the other day, she is only 10 years old. The singing starts at 1m.- 29secs.

a pleasing study of those beams, Brian. i am always amazed how the designers/constructors chose the layout.
Brian Walbey: The people from times goen by were very skilled at both design and construction without all our modern aids.
When "looking up" is meant to be mandatory, Brian! (I have heard that 10-year-old sing that song before and wonder how that is humanly possible!!)
Brian Walbey: One can't avoid looking up in this beautiful building. The third beautiful ceiling is here tomorrow and Friday. If that young girl has a voice like that at 10 what will she sing like with proper training when she gets a few years older, the fear of course is that she could be exploited to make money for others.

Not easy to photograph this view I'll bet Brian
Brian Walbey: One of those 'crick in the neck' photos Chris.

Did you lie on your back for this one, Brian? And thanks for sharing the singing
Brian Walbey: No I didn't lie down but leant backwards as far as I could. If that young girl has a voice like that at 10 what will she sing like with proper training when she gets a few years older, the fear of course is that she could be exploited by Simon Cowell to make money for him and others!

That is a wonderful ceiling shot here, Brian. (As for the girl, I am afraid that I have my own thoughts)
Brian Walbey: The second of three fine ceilings Astrid, the third beautiful ceiling is here tomorrow and Friday.

I especially like the woodwork detail.
Brian Walbey: It's all very well thought out.
you framed this dome perfectly Brian... it's a very intricate pattern....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I like the design.
That sun eye looks bloodshot with the red background. I like it.
Brian Walbey: I never thought of that, thanks very much.

It is a most interesting design, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Nothing on it seems to be square or parallel.
Thanks for that video, Brian. The ceiling panel is extraordinary as well.
Brian Walbey: Nothing on it seems to be square or parallel. Glad you enjoyed the video Mary.
