Verger Solveig Sonet carefully lights the oil lamps of acclaimed British artist Nicholas Pope's new installation in Salisbury Cathedral, 'The Apostle's speaking in Tongues'.<br />
<br />
The flames from the 12 terracotta 'apostles' represent the New Testament 'tongues of fire' speaking to the 19 other statues.<br />
<br />
The lamps on the 800 year old cathedral's high altar will be lit by the Vergers twice a day until August.
