Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs Of John Prine
Today's avant-roots renaissance owes a great debt to John Prine's laconic, ever-questioning poetic quality. Featuring 12 newly-recorded versions of classic Prine songs, "Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine" boasts an enviable roll call of inventive musicians, including My Morning Jacket, The Avett Brothers, Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band, Old Crow Medicine Show, and more. That Prine's perspective flourishes so vividly in these modern recastings is testament to not only the sheer power of his songs, but to the subtly defiant undercurrent that runs throughout his music.

Stained glass window at Douaumont
Stained glass window at Douaumont
One of the magnificent stained glass windows in the Douaumont chapel. Verdun saw possibly the bloodiest conflict of the Great War. The fighting there in 1916 would see huge numbers of French and German dead. General Petain wrote of the young troops returning from the battlefield:- "In their unsteady look one sensed visions of horror, while their step and bearing revealed utter despondency. They were crushed by horrifying memories." The battle was to commence on 21st February 1916 and rage until the end of 1916. As 1915 drew to a close Erich von Falkenhayn, the German Chief of Staff, concluded that a major battle should be fought with the French Army and he thought that such a battle would win Germany the war. Britain, he then argued, would either seek a peace settlement or would also suffer defeat. At the same time he advocated unrestricted submarine warfare against merchant shipping believing this would help bring Britain to her knees. The Germans were prepared to gamble with the risk of such warfare bringing the United States of America into the conflict. Falkenhayn cynically and deliberately chose Verdun as the venue for the clash of the two armies. Verdun had been the last fortress to fall during the Franco-Prussian War and Falkenhayn knew that it held a special place in the hearts of the French Nation. He also saw the value of the woods behind Verdun as a position easy to defend. The plan was to subject Verdun to intense bombardment and then attack along what was only an 8 mile front. The Germans hoped this would suck in troops from other sections of the Front. Falkenhayn’s aim was to “bleed France white” in her defence of the ancient fortress town. Verdun in fact formed a French salient into German lines and thus meant that Falkenhayn could attack it from three sides at once. The attack, by the German 5th Army under Crown Prince Wilhelm, started on the 21st February, 1916 preceded by a 21 hour bombardment. The French Leader Driant prepared for the onslaught by posting two battalions, led by himself, at the tip of the Verdun salient on the east bank of the Meuse River. He faced formidable opposition: one million German troops against 200,000 defenders. The attack finally began at 07:15 on 21 February, 1916, Crown Prince Wilhelm opening the battle with 1,400 guns lined up along the eight mile front. A nearby railway ensured that it was easy to satisfy the voracious thirst of the German guns as 100,000 shells poured into Verdun every hour. Wilhelm hoped that the artillery bombardment would decimate the French before his infantry began their attack but an early scouting mission showed this to have been somewhat optimistic. A good portion of the French Army remained intact. Wilhelm chose to renew the bombardment but by the end of the first day only the French front-line trenches were taken. Driant himself had however been killed during the battle and his two battalions nearly extinguished. On the 24th February the German Army over-ran the French second line of trenches and were within 8 kilometres of Verdun itself although two outer forts, Fort Vaux and Fort Douaumont continued to hold out! On the 25th February Douaumont fell. Ironically French morale was galvanised. Douaumont must be retaken; a withdrawal from Verdun was no longer an option. Joffre took the bit between his teeth and issued an order that any commander who gave ground to the advancing Germans would face a court-martial and dismissed General Langle de Cary, who being responsible for the defence of Verdun had decided to evacuate the Woevre Plain and the east bank of the Meuse. Such negative thoughts and actions would not be tolerated! Henri-Philippe Petain was promoted to take Langle de Cary’s place. Petain was a talented officer whose progress through the French Army had not been mercurial mainly due to his steadfast opposition to the prevailing policy of “attack at all costs.” Petain considered this a recipe for disaster. He was however known to be unflappable and when appointed to defend Verdun he was already commanding the 2nd Army. Petain made his famous pledge to Joffre: “Ils ne passeront pas!” “They shall not pass!” and telephoned to the commander of the Verdun front line instructing him to hold fast. Petain understood that the defence of Verdun would result in many French casualties: the nature of the terrain made this inevitable. However he was determined to inflict maximum damage on the Germans whilst incurring such losses. He re-organised the French use of artillery and took action to ensure that an effective supply route to Verdun was maintained, designating a single artery road leading to a depot 50 miles to the west at Bar-le-Duc to be dedicated to the supply of the soldiers at the front. Troops were assigned to ensure that the road was kept clear and do any running repairs which might be necessary. This road became known as the ‘Voie Sacree’: the ‘Sacred Road’. On 6 March the Germans began a
Fake East Window
Fake East Window
Photographic simulation of York Minster's great east window, hung in front of the scaffolded east end whilst the window is out for repair. The east window at York is one of wonders of gothic art and the largest medieval window in existance. It's original glazing, comprising 119 narrative scenes from the Old Testament and the Apocalypse, is as good as complete. It was created by the workshop of John Thornton of Coventry in 1405-8 (at a cost of around ?56!). Though the Minster's original glazing is unusually well preserved (by English standards) there has been considerably loss of clarity through the centuries of repair and patching which have resulted in heavier leadwork, intruded pieces of infill and extra leads (often across faces) where breakages have occured, often reducing the image to a confusing mosaic patchwork, difficult to decipher from ground level. The latest restoration by the York Glazier's Trust aims to restore some of this lost legibility using modern conservation techniques and research by sensitive releading of each panel,and removing disfiguring insertions to give back some of the clarity and brilliance it's original form possessed in order to be read from a distance (a similar process has just been completed on the nearby St William window (also by Thornton) where comparison between pre and post restoration photos show what an enormous success the project has been). Storing the World's largest medieval window has prooved a challenge, at first all 119 panels (with almost as many tracery pieces) where stored in crates in the Minster's stoneyard, until late 2009 when fire broke out in the rooms above, necessitating the evacuation of the massive window and rescuing it from what could have been the biggest loss to our national heritage since the Civil War! Happily all was saved from danger and is now stored within the Minster for the remainder of the project. A few panels have been temporarily displayed at ground level in the cathedral allowing close-up detailed views of images normally only visible with the aid of binoculars
