The organ

This is a view of the front of the organ of Saint Denis. Very impressive.

This is a view of the back. Much less impressive.



And this is the engine. Somebody had to work the pedals in order to pressurise air while the organist played. Sadly, the entire organ is not used any more, they have a small electric organ instead...

Great photos of the organ but most disappointing that it isn't used anymore! Maybe it would cost a fortune to restore it?
bon weekend

That is a shame.
