    </P>


    Hey - after only a few minutes I found it in Google Earth! </P>


    Since I've never been to St. Louis I'm either very lucky or I'm getting to be a wiz at Google Earth. []</P>


    It is Holy Trinity Catholic Church: website </P>

        I find this layout mysterious. Is the congregation not meant to observe the liturgy in the chancel?

          Well, Idon't think we'll find very many who would say that the organ and the choir associated with that space sound awful.

            Well, no. This follows the typical layout of of a Medieval British cathedral. The common folk were never to invade the sanctity of the quire and high altar. Usually the passageway between nave and quire was gated, and still is in many British cathedrals, notably Gloucester, Canterbury, Chichester, York, Lincoln, Exeter, Ely, even Westminster Abbey. For Sunday Eucharist a 'low altar' is located to the west of the screen. Matins (seldom done except in a few cathedrals) and Evensong are celebrated in the quire and the public is now invited into the stalls. (At St. Paul's in London, one either sneaks in or has 'connections' if the attendence exceeds available space in the quire.) At Westminster Abbey, it's always first come first served, and at King's College, to get a seat in the quire for Evensong, one has to queue for at least an hour outside to get a seat in the quire, otherwise one listens to the service from the vantage point of that 'mysterious' postcard.
            </p>

            Suffice it to say (I could go on and on about this), the Reformation brought many changes, and of course these are reflected in America's cathedrals and those built in Britain after the Reformation. Also a number of older British cathedrals were considerably modified -one could say 'vandalized- subsequent to the Reformation.

                  That photograph was taken prior to the completion of the organ. I believe that a decorative piece, such as a statuette, resides in that space. I am attending a "Pipedreams Live!" event at the church on February 14. I'll post an update the following day.</p>

                    3m Holtkamp 1963? practice organ at ESM. No, this is <span style="font-style: italic;">not </span>an artisticly retouched photo. I was playing it yesterday. The writing really has worn off the stoptabs onto the fingers of generations of organists.
