Sunday's Picture and a Song: The Bells of Notre Dame


Tomorrow is the very last day that the nine new bells will be displayed in the nave of Notre Dame Cathedral before they're installed in the towers. If you haven't seen them yet, please do. They're beautiful. I'll introduce Maurice, Gabriel and Marie in tomorrow's post. In the meantime, here's a sneak preview of the bells of Notre Dame.

    1. They're the bells. Isn't it great that they all have names! Maybe I'll learn to recognize them by sound - Marie should be easy because she'll be the new grand bell in the South Tower.

  2. So upset we missed the display of bells, but glad we were in Paris at the right time to catch a free organ concert and attend "World Organ Day" dedicated to the great organ in Notre Dame. I highly recommend stopping into one of these concerts, especially with a fellow American playing this summer!
