Open Churches Days : 4th and 5th June 2016
The theme of this 9th edition,Sounds and Silences makes
us listen to religious buildings : solemn organs, chimes, heavy bells
or the small bells of choristers, murmurs of the confessional, noise of
fountains, grating of chairs or doors, the wind in the tower, children
.but also sounds that one sees without hearing them: angel
musicians on the stained glass windows, musical instruments in the
paintings and on the capitals, statues and pulpits.
And as silence is the most melodious music (Christina Rossetti), one
can envisage a multitude of musical activities of all sorts
high-lighting these pauses that are the silences.
Over 580 churches organise an evenent during the upcoming Open Church days.
