Description:A misericord or miserere is the projecting shelf found underneath hinged choir stall seats. In the raised position it affords the occupant some support while standing during long services. Often the misericord is decorated with fine carvings of heads, figures, monsters, myths and legends, or scenes from everyday life such as this one of musicians playing the harp and the recorder.
