BHOD 13 - St Bartholomew’s Church

Description - St Bartholomew, Brighton, one of the great churches of the 19th century - the cathedral of what used to be called the "London-Brighton and South Coast Religion" with its incense, ritual, embroidered vestments and lights. The fabric itself is is a masterpiece of brickwork and a credit to its little-known architect, Edmund Scott. The fittings, great baldacchino and silver side altar by Henry Wilson, the font and the stained glass lancets complement each other and enhance the building. Only Holy Trinity, Sloane Street, in London, compares with it as a monument in richness of fittings belonging to that inventive time of the Art Workers Guild which immediately succeeded William Morris. In the noise and glitter of cheerful Brighton, this great church is a tall sanctuary of peace. Its interior awes beholders to silence.
