Medieval music

One of the joys of visiting Beverley Minster is seeing the wonderful carvings of medieval musicians which lines the north wall of the nave.  I've photographed them many times before but I always discover new faces and angles so I thought I'd share some of the portraits I took in this  wonderful building this afternoon.

Great even though some of the faces are a little scary 😊

These are fascinating, Helen!
Love the angles & tight focus.
#4 looks a little "devilish".
Is that an ancient bagpipe in #1?

I believe it is a bagpipe. I have a feeling the devilish character is meant to be a devil, although I can't remember how I knew that!

His expression certainly looks malevolent! Yikes!
