Virtual Paul’s Cross Project

Virtual Paul’s Cross Project

The Virtual Paul’s Cross Project uses visual and acoustic modeling software to combine visual images from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries with measurements of these buildings made during archaeological surveys of their foundations. The Project also integrates into the visual model the look of a November day in London. The acoustic simulation recreates the acoustic properties of Paul’s Churchyard. As a result, we may hear all two hours of John Donne’s sermon for Gunpowder Day in the space of its original delivery and acoustic context.
