St. Paul’s Cathedral is #4 in our London Bucket List

To mark the 150th anniversary of Berlioz's death, American conductor John Nelson will be leading the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus and London Philharmonic Choir in a performance of the composer's monumental requiem, Grande Messe des Mortes, at St Paul's Cathedral.

During his second visit to London in 1851 Berlioz actually attended a performance at St Paul's himself: "It was the most amazing thing I have never seen or heard," he said. "As moving in its immense grandeur, arranged in a colossal amphitheatre."

Craig’s review of St. Paul’s – “One of the things that I have always liked about St. Paul's Cathedral is the lousy piece of street planning outside the front door. As you walk up Ludgate Hill you'll expect to see the grand facade block off the top like a great barn door, but with the way the street curves over the brow all you get is three-quarters of the front. It's the worst piece of street planni… continued”

Craig’s review of St. Mary-le-Bow A lot of London's churches were like a layer cake. They'd have an original crypt from 900 years ago, then a burnt out sponge in the middle (courtesy of the Great Fire of London), topped off with some decorative icing by Christopher Wren. Then the greedy Luftwaffe came along… continued
Craig’s review of St. Michael Paternoster Royal This tiny little church was Dick Whittington's local. He used to live next door. (We're talking about the 1390s, around the time of Richard II, so it looked totally different back then -- it was rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London.) I always feel a bi… continued
Craig’s review of choral mass at Hampton Court So once again I find myself in church. I think I go to more masses than religious people do. But this one's well worth a visit -- the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace. That's the place where Henry VIII used to pray with Anne Boleyn, when he still thought her worth having… continued
