Playing second fiddle to Sacré-Coeur on the hill of Montmartre is not too bad when you have a perfect Cavaillé-Coll organ. This former abbey became a place of music in the late 17th Century during the years when Renée de Lorraine was abbess. Although not as large as many of the Paris organs, its tradition of music continues the rich heritage of this church on the hill.
