A couple of observations here: the altar is obviously an amazingly restrained piece of rococo (a contradiction in terms?) which is not attempting to overwhelm the sanctuary in typical ‘Look at me!’ fashion; why the candlesticks are so studiously avoiding the predella defeats me.
The other point is that if there is a ‘central’ or ‘forward’ altar (as one presumes there is), then the chairs could have been arranged ‘choir-wise’ or ‘antiphonally’ instead of so blatantly ignoring the high altar.
‘O tempora, O mores!’
