St. Modan's Church

The Session House was changed to being a chapel in 1957. About that time Charles E Stewart of Glasgow designed and installed these windows depicting the adoration of the Magi.

These two windows seem to me to be reminiscent of late 19th century work in composition and rendering. The setting is more modern and has less need to fill every available space.

The last window to be installed was by Crear McCartney in 1996. It was presented in honour of Mr Hugh Taylor in recognition of his contribution to the music of St. Modan's

This brilliantly shining, but hidden window completes my tour of the church.
