Where Light Falls

This weekend has seen an extraordinary and very moving event at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral. Where Light Falls is a light show which remembers and commemorates the members of the St Paul’s Watch who ensured the cathedral’s survival despite the terrible bombing during the Blitz.

Keith Jarrett has written a poem to accompany the light show, it’s called From the Log Book and starts with quotations from that book. The poem is broadcast throughout the event, and many of the images are linked to the lines. The poem ends with “When morning comes, I’ll wear a dome of hope.”

I hope these pictures will encourage you to go and stand in the cold this evening and be moved by what you see and hear.

I shall be leading public tours in and around the cathedral on several occasions over the coming months. Click here to find out more, or contact me via the contact form below.
