Abstract

A study of the contemplative depth achievable in the late Middle Ages by Midlands alabaster images via their propensity, in combination with light and - crucially - music, to evoke process and hence an enhanced, 'living' experience for the worshipping devotee. The essay uses a series of contemporary visual and musical examples to make this case.
