This window is an excellent example of Fellowes Prynne's design in collaboration with the stained glass specialist firm of Bacon Brothers. The throng of holy people, the presence of angels, the lavish use of colour, and the setting of each light in its own architectural niche are devices seen across his work.

The illustrations show this window, including detail of the centre light. Note how Christ's hands appear outside “the frame” - giving the impression to me that He cannot be confined by any human artifice.
