The Cathedral’s ornate columns and pointed arches and the ceiling’s ribbed vaulting are characteristic of Gothic design. Over 8,000 six pointed stars of 24-karat gold leaf are placed at random on a field of blue. The interior walls are painted in a faux technique that creates the effect of limestone blocks. The floor is white oak tongue-in-groove planking.
Cantate Domino by Hassler, sung by the Cathedral Choir.
