York Minster

York Minster is the largest cathedral in North Europe and is also known as the greatest gothic cathedral in North Europe.
MBA and I worshiped at their Even Song this past Friday night -- complete with a men and girls' choir.
York's first Minster was built for the baptism of the Anglo Saxon King, Edwin of Northumbria. Edwin was christened in a small wooden church that had been built for the occasion, this event occurred on Easter Sunday in the year 627.
However, the current building began construction in 1215 and took 250 years to complete.

This building is immaculate in every way.
From ceiling to floor to statue -- impressive in every imaginable way.

Absolute Grandeur.
