The Lady Chapel
Originally this space housed the organ manual,
and was where the choir robed before services.
In 1980 the organ manual was moved into the choir
and the bell manual was relocated to make room for
the creation of the Lady Chapel in memory of
Desmond Pacey by his wife, Mary.
The Chapel from the Steps
||The Hooper Carving - The hanging sculpture above the butternut screen and altar
is the work of John Hooper of Hampton. Made of butternut, mahogany and pine, the figures in the
carving all represent the Church. The Blessed Virgin and infant
Jesus, trumpeting angels, a scholar, and a girl in jeans
are among the various figures.
||The Chapel Reredos - Behind the altar, the reredos holds the Tabernacle.
This golden vessel serves as a receptacle for eucharistic elements.
The Choir vestry is located immediately behind the chapel, where the choir prepares before worship services.
The kneelers and the hangings in the chapel were made by
Up above the arch at the entrance to the chapel
is the Echo Organ, which is separated from the rest
of the Organ in the north transept.
A Cathedral Fact... - Who is buried here?
Many visitors believe that Bishop Medley lies
inside the Cathedral beneath his marble effigy, but his
remains are laid in the church yard under the East Window.
Former Lieutenant Governor George Stracey Smyth is the only person buried in the Cathedral's crypt, as his remains had been
placed in the Old Christ's Church which was demolished after
the construction of the Cathedral. The burial plaque of
Lt. Gov. Smyth may be found on the south wall of Lady Chapel.
