Grundtvigs Kirke in Copenhagen, Denmark



The photo in the August issue depicts Grundtvigs Kirke in Copenhagen, Denmark, built 1921 to 1940 in honor of Danish clergyman, philosopher, author and composer Nicolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872).

Grundtvig must have taken to heart the exhortation in Psalms to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord”; he wrote 1,500 hymns, many of which are sung to this day. With Grundtvig’s musical gifts in mind, the church was designed to resemble a pipe organ.

Thirty-eight correct entries were sent in by the deadline, and ANNETTE SPEARS of Peoria, Arizona, won the drawing.

We thank Tom DeClaire of Webster, New York, for contributing the photo.
