The interior of a church, with a choir processing from the chancel into the nave and turning in front of the pews, led by a boy holding a processional cross. Women of the choir are lined up two by two, wearing light-colored capes, skirts, and flat caps, holding open hymn books. Behind them, still in the chancel, are men wearing a white surplice over a dark cassock, holding hymn books. The chancel is separated from the nave by a carved screen; behind the screen is a man sitting at an organ console, with the altar to the left. Title from note on back of photograph. One of five photographs, 2 of Christ Episcopal Church, Houston, and 3 of choirs used in donor's book, A Happy Worldly Abode, our Accession No. 16978.
