The second two-light Music and Literature window is situated to the right of the main entrance. The window is virtually identical in design to the Music and Literature (1929) window designed by Harry Clarke, with the addition of a pair of angels with blue faces.
The top panels depict colourful foliage and blossoms entwined around long white stems. The second section of the first light depicts a panel of medieval musical instruments. The second light contains a panel denoting literature. The third section of both lights contains angels with blue faces and wings, decorated with purple flowers and blue and white foliage. The remainder of both lights contain decorative floral designs in green, blue, purple and gold. The lower panels each depict an exquisite vase decorated with flowers.
The text on the lower panels is inscribed in the form of two open books:
