Agnus Dei 2000 - Janus

'After passing a miserable row of cottages,
and forcing our way through a crowd of importunate beggars,
we stopped to examine the rich architecture of the west front;
but the door suddenly opened, the inside perspective of the church
called forth an instantaneous burst of admiration,
and filled me with delight,
such as I scarcely ever before experienced on a similar occasion'
