Which Church?

September 06, 1987

I read with interest Frank Riley's July 12 article about the summer festival in Luebeck, West Germany. We left the following day for Germany and had the opportunity to visit Luebeck and enjoy one of the many concerts to which he referred.

However, he referred to St. James' Church as being the world's largest Gothic brick church. In the first place, we could find no St. James' Church in Luebeck; he must have been referring to St. Jacob's Church. Second, if he in fact meant St. Jacob's Church, I don't see how he figured that it was larger than the Marien Church, which is also brick and very definitely Gothic and immensely larger than St. Jabob's.

The organ concert at St. Jacob's was indeed a wonderful experience, and we were grateful for Riley's article.
