Sunday Church Series - La Chorale


Late one afternoon, we wandered into the Église Saint-Merri and found this group practicing for an upcoming concert.

I can imagine the acoustics would be amazing ...and what a wonderful name for a church - Église Saint-Merri.

Beautiful church! I love the lighting on both sides of the church, so pretty!

Kiki said...

lovely peaceful shot with a quite animated conductor! Had to look twice because I thought it was one of 'our' choirs... but I don't even know this beautiful church!
Happy ending of this 3rd advent.

Aaaah, music in the churches—one of my most favorite things about Paris. This is lovely, V!

What fabulous good fortune! And what a magnificent place. The voices likely sounded divine?.. Of course. :)

This looks like a lovely discovery.

As we tour churches looking at the architecture and the stained-glass windows, it's easy to forget that they serve another purpose. What fun to stumble upon a choir.

I have been to many concerts in the various churches in France. Sometimes the acoustics are good, and sometimes, not so good.
