Harris Manchester College Chapel – Angels

I have commented extensively on the stained glass of The Chapel of Harris Manchester College and in particular its East Window.  Having previously edited the rose ‘Teaching the Ignorant’ I was drawn to the selection of angels that that flank the rose.

I have yet to find a detailed guide to tracery in order to identify and name, appropriately, the various parts of a church window.  Notwithstanding, below are edits of these beautiful, yet subtle components of the window.  I have cropped each as a square to optimise their use on Instagram, but also because they might lend themselves to greetings card design.
