The mighty cathedral is neither the tallest, oldest nor biggest in the world, but it can rightly claim to be the best-known. And we all should already be celebrating the 850th anniversary of Notre Dame Cathedral, in Paris, which celebration started last December 12th 2012 and it goes till November 24th 2013.
Among the great projects and events are: a new bell chime in the cathedral towers composed of eight new bells and a new tenor bell which will crown the great tenor bell Emmanuel, the improvement of the lighting of the interior; the renovation of the Great Organ; an exceptional musical season of the cathedral choir linking heritage and creation; a scientific symposium; exhibitions; monumental shows; exceptional books and a new museography for the Treasury museum.
The heart of this anniversary will be the pilgrimage which will be offered to everyone and which will begin on the cathedral square on which will stand an ephemereal building esecially designed for the anniversary. You are all invited to join the celebration of 850 years of Notre-Dame de Paris!
