Église Notre Dame des Champs

We sat and listened intently to the organ 
as the music filled every corner of the immense space.  
It was a rehearsal by Yannick Merlin, 
and we watched as he and his assistant 
descended the narrow spiral stairs behind the latticed enclosure,
seen at the back of the church (under the arches).

The organ was built by Cavaillé-Coll in 1877, 
just as the roman styled church was completed (a ten-year venture).

bon dimanche
