Editorial Reviews

This fascinating film visits three spectacular English cathedrals representing a range of styles. Norwich, among the best-preserved of the Anglo-Norman cathedrals built after the Norman Conquest, was intended to impose the conquerors' powerful presence on the Saxons. The amazingly open and delicate, yet complex, Lincoln Cathedral features the first use of spreading ribs in the vaults, an invention that eventually would spread throughout England. The facade of Wells includes the richest sculpture in the countryside a and, with its Bishop's Palace, Vicar Close, Chapter House and unusual scissors arches in the nave, is the best-loved of English cathedrals. Offering a splendid guided tour, the video moves through the structures accompanied by medieval music, exploring contrasts of dark and colored light, spaces interrupted by delicate columns, and the extraordinary patterns of ribs. Diagrams and aerial views show how the cathedrals housed the liturgical and other activites of monks, canons and bishops. Educational and evocative, Three English Cathedrals is a wonderful architectural experience.
