This GigaPan is of the nave of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. The exterior view of the Church can be seen here: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/37836/ and is now in a series of three GigaPans: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/most_popular/?q=salem+church
Because of my interest in this Church, I attended their Christmas Eve service, the early one at 5PM, which was designed by the children of the Church and it was a good choice on my part to attend for it was very memorable.

The service was entitled, Silent Night, but it was far from silent. It started with an organ cello prelude and then Scripture readings from Isaiah, Titus and Luke intermixed with lovely Anthems sung by the Salem Music Kidz: Ding Dong; Infant Holy, Infant Lowly; Midnight Stars Make Bright the Sky (an amazing Chinese Carol).

And then Christmas Carols sung by all of us: Joy to the World (by Isaac Watts ... my favorite hymnodist), Angels We have Heard on High, Away in a Manger; Silent Night, Holy Night; and Go Tell It on the Mountain.

And several messages by Pastor David Roschke ( www.gigapan.org/gigapans/37836/snapshots/110630/ ), and concluded by an organ Postlude, In Dulci Jubilo, written by Paul Manz.

This GigaPan was stitched from 1,071 photos taken with a SX110 camera on a GigaPan robot. Actually, there were more than that taken; however, the 360-degree did not stitch as desired, but two marvelous GigaPans were extracted from the entire collection.

Note: As can be observed from this view, the interior is bathed in natural light, which is typically different from other churches; however, this design provides a very positive impact for when I first entered the nave.
