The Hundredth Edition






Our cover picture for this month is a roof boss from the sanctuary of the Cathedral Church of Our Lady, Antwerp. the vaulting of the choir at Antwerp is remarkable for having retained much of the original early fifteenth century colouring. St John the Baptist has, over the last ten years, become something of a Patron Saint of new Directions. We particularly admire his tone see Luke 3: 714
