Music to your ears

For music lovers, and in particular organ lovers, here is a little taste of L’Orgue d’Uzès, originally build in 1679 and restored for the last time in 1964.

It was built by a Capuchin Franciscan friar in the style of Louis XIV with a southern touch and the only other surviving organ of the same style is the one in Saint-Louis des Invalides in Paris (even if the later is a lot bigger). You can read more about it (in French) here.
