St Bride's West Window

The west window at St Bride's is a cheerful one. Not only is it west facing, making good use of the low evening sun, but it depicts a happy event - a wedding. It also has a group of musicians in the tracery above the wedding scene. These all are children playing various instruments. A number (but not all) of these are shown here.

Each of the children has a different mood and expression. Not all of them seem to be enjoying their performance.

Above them all are two angels are watching over the young musicians. This is one of them.

As you can see the colour scheme is mainly red. The blues occur only in the top three lights of the tracery.
