in the footsteps of Durufle and Messiaen

St Etienne du Mont where Durufle was organist

Last night when we were looking for a restaurant recommended to us, we actually bumped into a church called St. Nicolas du Chardonnet. We sat down momentarily then found ourselves in the midst of a Tridentine Mass — that is, the service was done in the “old” style with the priest’s back to the congregation most of the time. Although he read the lessons in French, the rest of the service was in Latin.

St Etienne's organ

Before leaving Paris this morning we stopped at two more churches: St Etienne du Mont where Durufle was organist and La Trinité, home church for Olivier Messiaen.

About Katherine Crosier

In addition to playing the organ I am interested in documenting life's special moments through journaling, scrapbooking, photography and slideshow production. My family just groans.
