inSPIREd Sunday

This is St. Bartholomew's Episcopal church
(commonly just called St. Bart's) on Park Avenue
between 50th and 51st.  It was built in 1903
and has the largest pipe organ in New York (and
one of the ten largest in the world).  I heard
it when my daughter Kate got to sing here once
years ago—St. Bart's (famous) children's choir was
traveling one Sunday and the young choristers
of St. Luke's (in the West Village) were asked to step in.
