Great way to learn about the transition in architecture. For me, the pictures were essential to my understanding.

Elegant piece. And I’m very glad I signed up a year ago. Learned such a lot in a year - and I thought I was quite swotty to start with. Always good to read and think afresh, always good to be provoked! Thanks for a good year.

I'm lucky enough to live in Ely, we're so lucky. Looking forward to talking about Shakespeare on Sunday, I'm finding it amusing using Google Bard to understand the great man's works.

I haven't been to Ely in a while and that addition to the Lady Chapel is a horror. Is she about to jump?

By far the most impressive section of Maestro is the re-creation of Bernstein conducting Mahler's Resurrection Symphony in Ely Cathedral. Apparently Bernstein had studied architecture as a student and chose Ely for the perfect acoustics. I hope this is the link to the original https://youtu.be/1-YW-6jM-Fc?si=2dOUTwEJ_rLTcKVy
