I visited St. Bavo at Haarlem, the capital of the province Noord Holland of the Netherlands. A kind of Anton Pieck city with a center of remaining old houses and church from the past middle ages. The Bavo, as they call it, has a length of 108 meters and the width meets 47 meters at broadest. The wooden roof is at 10 meters and the tower meets 76 meters. The longest pipe of the Christian Müller organ has a length of 32 feet (10 meters).
The Bavo’s floor – the total building period during 1370 – 1538 – consists entirely of graphs. In total there are 1500 charts. The oldest of all from the 15th century.
The light falling through the stained glass windows is fantastic. The organist played softly in the background – so, I photographic merged into the light of St. Bavo.
