ParisTravelPlanner.com Logo   Organ Music in Paris, France
Paris boasts many top quality historic organs, and there are numerous opportunities to hear great music.

 

 

Many of the churches of Paris contain excellent organs. A combination of church services, free recitals (often on Sunday afternoons), and paid concerts provide a variety of means to hear these magnificent instruments.

Here are some that we have enjoyed:

L'Église Saint-Sulpice: a marvelous organ, featured during church services, recitals each Sunday after the main mass, and occasional concerts/recitals.

Cathédral de Notre-Dame de Paris: wonderful to hear during church services, Sunday afternoon organ recitals, and occasional paid concerts.

L'Église Saint-Eustache: an organ of 8000 pipes, played during services and weekly recitals/concerts.

L'Église de la Madeleine: the Madeleine's organ was built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in the 1800s, who also built the Saint-Sulpice organ. Frequent free recitals as well as other concerts.

There are many more; you can check the church web sites, look for posters at the church, and check out the weekly Pariscope guide for more information.
