All Angels’ Church pulpit and choir rail by Karl Bitter

The Austrian-born Bitter was one of the foremost architectural sculptures working in the United States at the turn of the twentieth-century. This pulpit and choir rail from New York’s All Angels’ Church (demolished 1978) were commissioned by Sarah R. Cornell in Memory of her Husband and two sons and unveiled on All Saints’ Day (November 1), 1900. Angels were carved in high relief, playing musical instruments or carrying appropriate attributes, dramatically twist and turns as they move across the balustrade. Above the pulpit, in an apotheosis of the joyous processional theme below, a large trumpeting angel appears. Supporting the column is a partial figure of Moses holding the tablets of the Law.
