Choir Stalls of Amiens Cathedral

The Choir Stalls of Amiens Cathedral

Welcome to the choir stalls which flank the two bays of the choir. The canons would gather here to chant the Divine Office (the Psalms) and celebrate the Mass and liturgical feast days. The lateral screens (clĂ´tures) flanking the stalls were constructed in the early sixteenth century. In the choir stalls, you will discover miniature sculptures and reliefs that intertwine stories from the Old and New Testaments as well as images of daily life in Amiens.
