The Resurrection

Lavers & Barraud


St Edward the Confessor, Romford, Essex

This window is the closest to the chancel of the three original windows in the north wall of St Edward the Confessor's. Musician angels look down from the tracery on the episodes surrounding the Resurrection: Mary Magdalene's encounter with Jesus in the garden, Jesus breaking bread with the disciples at Emmaus, and Jesus appearing to the astonished disciples by the seashore.
