The Annunciation Window

Stained Glass

My own personal jewel in this place, which has so many treasures, is the sublime 2nd quarter of the 14th century window of the Virgin Mary at the Annunciation. Subtly coloured, in contrast to the vivid Burne-Jones picture book representation of St Frideswide’s life, is the sinuous elegant depiction of a young maid compliant and humble.  Elizabeth Harrison, Secretary of the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral
