"I do not think there is in Oxford any better specimen of Gothic design, old or new", wrote architectural historian Harry Goodhart-Rendel of the Chapel of Pusey House. With its Temple Moore design and its fittings by Ninian Comper - whose ciborium over the altar in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel is one of the finest examples of his work - it is one of Oxford’s hidden gems. Some of Comper’s original vestments remain in use, and others have been commissioned using his original designs.
Far from being an architectural showpiece, however, the Chapel remains a place of living worship, where the offices are chanted and the mass offered every day; either quietly in the stillness of an early weekday morning or with splendid music and full ceremonial on Sunday. It is a place where prayer continues to be offered to God in the beauty of holiness.
