The traditional Holy Week silence broken in solidarity of Notre-Dame and the people of Paris following the devastating fire at the Cathedral on Monday evening, but also in thanksgiving for the survival of the Grand Organ and much of the Stained Glass including the fine medieval Rose Windows, all of which Notre-Dame is famed for.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to break down, and a time to build up.” Ecclesiastes 3.
Rung with the bells half muffled on Maundy Thursday as part of the national ringing for Notre-Dame.
A tribute from the people of the City of Lincoln to the people of the City of Paris - two City’s both with Great Cathedrals dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Here in Lincoln we know the importance and the affection given to such an imposing and magnificent building within the City skyline, our thoughts and prayers go out to Notre-Dame & Paris. ‘From one St Mary’s to another’
856 changes specially chosen to represent the age of Notre Dame, with construction of the Cathedral beginning in 1163 (856 years ago).

This performance is linked to the event Ringing for Notre-Dame.
