Music at La Madeleine

La Madeleine was designed in 1764 in the style of a Greek temple with 52 Corinthian columns.
Under the orders of Louis XVIII it was turned into a church dedicated to St Mary Magdalene in 1845.

We really enjoyed the concert by "Les Violons de France" which included a stirring version of Vivaldi's "Les Quatres Saisons"and Schubert's "Ave Maria"with the soprano Cecile Besnard.

  1. OMG, the culture never ends in a city that never sleeps. A far cry from the "What's On" in Perth ...
