CATHED)RALS 01F TIHE OLD AND NEW WORLD THE CHOIR OF SALISBURY CATHEDRAL Though finely proportioned and impressive, the interior of this church produces a rather cold and bare effect, due to the absence of painted glass (destroyed by the Puritan Re formers) and the rearrangement of the memorial tombs by the so-called restorer Wyatt. Hardly a trace of foreign influence appears. Salisbury is one of the few great cathedrals begun and practically completed within the span of a single generation-between 1220 and 1260.
