Église Saint-Antoine-des-Quinze-Vingts

Église Saint-Antoine-des-Quinze-Vingts
the primary organ

This great organ comes from the instrument built 
by the renown Aristide Cavaille-Coll in 1894 for the mansion of Baron Espée.  
It was moved from the Baron's residence on 
Avenue Bois de Boulogne to Saint-Antoine in 1909.

Like many churches, there is a second organ, 
a practice organ for the choir, which I will show you another time.

bon dimanche

Yes, it is such a pleasure to enter one of those churches and listen the organist to practice. A treat! You do know how to enjoy life.

The guy on the back pew must have arrived early for the concert. :-)
