"Organ Auditions at Notre Dame (& Saint Eustache)" Religion Tip by OrlandoBR

Religion, Paris: 33 reviews and 38 photos


One of the most enjoyable things to do in Paris is to attend the organ auditions at the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The place gets crowded and the tourists keep going around, in respectful silence. Nobody reacts with indifference to the sound of such a wonderful instrument. It sends chills up your spine when the lower keys make the ground shake and it seem like the all the glasses will break.

I find it best when my favorite Bach chorals are on the program, bien sûr...

There is another fantastic instrument at Saint Eustache (Les Halles) with regular organ recitals every Sunday. It's inconveniently scheduled for 5:15pm, so there's never time to run from Notre Dame to see it too.

Every Sunday at 4:30pm, Cathédrale de Notre-Dame.
