The Lady Chapel (now also the Blessed Sacrament chapel) has an altarpiece of the Madonna and Child with
four saints. It is in the style of Lorenzo Monaco, who was active around 1400.

Cruc a-web    A painted Florentine crucifix from the 1400s hangs beside the pulpit.

There are also Russian and Italian hanging silver sanctuary lamps, large silver Belgian candlesticks, and Bohemian crystal chandeliers,
to say nothing of the superb vestments.
