Merry Christmas

It’s easy to forget the reason why we celebrate Christmas. Therefore I want to share a picture I captured in the beautiful Cathedral of my home town. It’s from the baptismal chapel inside the Cathedral. The polyptych behind the baptismal font is dedicated to Maria Magdalena.

I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

The pipe organ in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora

Today we look at some more beautiful inventories in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora. The present pipe organ is the 6th in the church’s history. It’s built by Grönlunds Orgelbyggeri, delivered 1976, and has 58 organ stops. However 20 of those organ stops are remains from three of the organ’s predecessors. The facade of the organ remains as it was originally built after Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz’s design in 1762. To the left you can see the baptismal chapel with the stained glass window called “Andreaskorst”, “The Andrew Cross”, made by Bengt Olof Kälde 1936.
