Pilgerchor

The Espoo Cathedral is a mediaval stone church near Helsinki, Finland.

In August 2012, I went there together with my wife in order to shoot a promotional picture of her floral work for weddings.

The last time I had visited the cathedral was in 1996 when my father was buried. When we carried his coffin out of the church the song played by the organist was Pilgerchor from Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner.

Now, 16 years later, we parked our car and walked along the cathedral in order to find a nice spot for the pictures. As we passed the cathedral, I heard a choir practising inside. Yep, the song they were singing was Pilgerchor.

This is the final picture.
