Early evening when the light is going, and all the mosaics really come into their own. Sparkling and shimmering, the imported Murano glass holds centre stage. Truth be told, the vista takes your breath away. Having seen lots of Highlights on ” The Tour ” at St Paul’s Cathedral, we are then directed to the steps leading up to The Whispering Gallery. A moment’s hesitation due to the numerous steps, however, this is an opportunity not to be missed, so up we go.
It is almost time evensong and suddenly the resounding organ music fills the cathedral. Exalting and uplifting, it is utter perfection and we are transfixed and enthralled. Last summer I was in the cathedral at Orléans in France, and there had been an organ recital, for friends, and again the music had left me speechless.
The crescendos seep into your soul and lifts you into another world. But now we have entered the circular Whispering Gallery. Made for secrets, this circular world is a private space way above everyday eyes. A space for beauty and a place for a memorable occasion. With the mosaic tiles twinkling and the organ music filling every part of your body, this was the perfect place for a marriage proposal. Not quite private, but as they were oblivious to everything except each other, it didn’t seem to matter.You could feel their radiance and their happiness was right up there with the stars.
Monsieur et mademoiselle, I send you my heartfelt congratulations. May you have true happiness and joy for ever.
A bus ride home and then canapés and champagne
