Lovely monuments.

by leics

There are lots of beautiful monuments and tombs in Worcester Cathedral (as in all English cathedrals) but it is easy to miss them. Take the time to look closely at some...............they not only tell you about the person they commemorate but also about the times they lived in. Look at the clothes on the one in the photo; a perfect example of a virtuous Tudor woman!

Elgar's Statue

by iwys

Edward Elgar (1857-1934), Britain's greatest classical composer, came from Worcester. There are several memorials to him, including this statue at the end of Worcester High Street, facing the cathedral, only yards from where his father's music store once stood. Elgar was an active member of the Worcester Glee Club, along with his father, and he accompanied singers, played violin, composed and arranged works, and conducted for the first time there. At 22 he took up the post of bandmaster at the Worcester and County Lunatic Asylum in Powick, three miles south-west of Worcester, a progressive institution which believed in the recuperative powers of music.

He is one of my favourite composers and one of England's cultural heroes. From 1999 until early 2007, Bank of England twenty pound notes featured his portrait. His music is always played at the Last Night of the Proms. Possibly his most famous works are the Enigma Variations and Pomp and Circumstance Marches from which came 'Land of Hope and Glory', which in my opinion should be the British national anthem, rather than that awful German dirge, 'God Save the Queen'. But, my personal favourite of his works is his beautiful, melancholy Cello Concerto

Chapter House

by leics

The inside of the peaceful Chapter House of Worcester Cathedral is the earliest example of its type (circular). It was built between 1000 and 1115, and has 95 seats for the monks' daily meeting. The roof is beautiful........delicate ribs fanning out like the spokes of an umbrella.

City of Medieval Origin

by Galahad

Worcester is the County Town of Worcestershire. The county is to the south west of the Birmingham and the West Midland conurbation. My home town, Stourport-on-Severn, is 13 miles to the north of Worcester upstream on the River Severn.
Worcester is a University town and is where I am currently studying (OK I know I am in my 60's) for a 2nd degree, this time a Masters degree in 19th Century Studies.

"Cathedral of St Wulstan and St Oswald."

Dedicated to St Wulstan and St Oswald. Wulstan became Bishop of Worcester in 1062 and the Cathedral is the burial place of St Oswald and King John (died 18th October 1216). Worcester Cathedral is always having to have repairs to its stonework so the view you might like to photo may not always be possible.
Jan 2003. English Heritage gave a grant of £221,000 towards ongoing masonry and roof repairs.
Jan 2004. English Heritage have just announced a grant of £99,000 to repair the Chapter House roof.
Jan 2006 English Heritage Cathedral Grants scheme have just awarded the Cathedral GBP50,000 towards conservation work on the 12th century polygonal Chapter House.

"Elgar"

At one end of the High Street opposite the Cathedral is this statue of Elgar.
