Cambridge: All Saints - Pre-Raphaelite glass
The east window has "famous stained glass by [William] Morris & Co. Its date is 1864-6. It is surprisingly light in its general appearance, owing to the fact that the individual figures which had one panel each to themselves are surrounded by plenty of clear glass, by [Edward] Burne-Jones (then only about thirty years old), except for four by Morris himself (bottom tier r, bottom but one l, centre r) and Ford Madox Brown (top tier two and four, second tier two and four" (Nikolaus Pevsner). Silhouetted against morning light is an 18th-century brass chandelier which came from the original church on Trinity Street.
