Hello, @PatrickR720159. Wow thank you for your review of St. Sulpice. Your description transports all of us there!

 

Does anyone else have a special place in Paris they'd like to share about?

St. Sulpice in Paris is a must see because of the organ

Cavielle Coll has made several organs in France.  St. Sulpiece is where organist Daniel Roth plays.  But I hear to get to that big 5 manual Cavielle Col, you have to walk up a 52-step spiral staircase and you enter a balcony overlooking the sancutary and once you come out, you are really about 3 or 4 stories up in the air!  Back in the days when Mozart, Beethoven, and many great composers, they had no choice but to put up with that long walk and bineg 3 or more stories up in the air just to get to the console to do their work.  I am not sure how much space there is between the pipe facade and the opening that is over the rail.  What is so cool about the place is when the organist is done plaing, the sound travels on for quite a distance.  I wish that there was an easier way up there.  I am not sure who will be the next organist to play at St. Sulpiece when they loose their beloved Daniel Roth.  I am glad that the organ is being preserved so that a piece of historic music never dies.
