How to hear as much

organs as possible

during a weekend?

Organ concerts (‘audition d’orgue’) are scarse in Paris. To hear the organs, you often have to attend the masses. The organ is mostly used during the masses on Saturday-evening and Sunday- morning. The organist plays the prelude (often very short), the offertoire (2-3 minutes) the communion (6- 10 minutes) and the sortie (5 minutes). Many organs are tuned before Christmas and before Easter. Many organs need maintenance- works rather urgently, but the city of Paris has only very limited resources for its organs…
