‘Tis the season to gawk once again at the gorgeous stained glass windows ofGrace St.-Stephens Episcopal Church.

Note that the first two images are of a pair of stained glass windows that look a bit like Tiffany windows, but they are in fact made by Henry Landon Parkhurst.

The music is the fifth movement of Cantata No. 131 by J.S. Bach, Aus der Tiefe rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (Psalm 130) performed by the St. Stephen’s & Taylor Choir with Chamber Orchestra & Soloists on March 7, 2010 at the “Masterpieces for Lent” Taylor Memorial Concert at the church.

With many thanks to Spot Holmes, Marianna McJimsey, Clelia DeMoraes, Organist and Choirmaster Deke Polifka, and the St. Stephen’s & Taylor Choir of Grace Church.
