Basilica

Circa 2005

I was parked outside the Chch School of Music on Friday afternoon waiting for my daughter when I noticed this amazing light from the Basilica as the sun was going down. I thought I would capture it with a few photos, I only got one and then my battery died.

The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament

Circa 1905

The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, Barbadoes Street was designed by Francis William Petre, it is based on old Roman basilicas, but is neo-classical in style, derived from eighteenth century French examples. Tenders for the building were called towards the end of 1900. The foundation stone was laid on 10 February 1901 and the contractors, J. and W. Jamieson, completed the building in four years. Fifty men were employed on its construction, which required more than 120,000 cubic ft. of stone, 4,000 cubic ft. of concrete and 90 tons of steel. It is 210 ft. by 106 ft. and reaches a height of 135 ft. The Cathedral was blessed and opened on 12 February 1905, at a total cost of £52,213.

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, Barbadoes Street

Circa 1925

Although Petre had intended the original altar to be in keeping with the style of the building, Bishop Grimes commissioned the elaborate marble and bronze high altar shown in the photograph to be carved by Italian Giuseppe Cassioli. Shipping disruptions caused by the outbreak of World War I meant its final sections did not arrive until 1916. Designed by Francis William Petre, it is based on old Roman basilicas, but is neo-classical in style, derived from eighteenth century French examples. Tenders for the building were called towards the end of 1900. The foundation stone was laid on 10 February 1901 and the contractors, J. and W. Jamieson, completed the building in four years. Fifty men were employed on its construction, which required more than 120,000 cubic ft. of stone, 4,000 cubic ft. of concrete and 90 tons of steel. It is 210 ft. by 106 ft. and reaches a height of 135 ft. The Cathedral was blessed and opened on 12 Feb. 1905, at a total cost of £52,213.

Cassioli's altar is perfectly suited to the architecture. See my UC thesis online.
