Description

During the summer, the Musique en l'Ile festival, organised by the musical association La Toison d'Art, offers a programme of concerts in various churches around Paris. For almost 30 years, this festival has brought together those who appreciate religious music and traditional song, inviting them to attend concerts at the Church of Saint-Germain des Près (6th district) and the Church of Saint-Louis en l'Ile (4th district).
Every year, Musique en l'Ile offers a rich and varied programme including Corsican polyphony, Renaissance music, Russian popular songs and secular music.

All public

Église Saint-Louis-en-l'Île

Begun in 1664 on plans by Le Vau, it was completed in 1726 and dedicated to St. Louis. A curious bell tower houses a modern clock that hangs perpendicular to the street, and dates from 1741. The church preserves works of art, including "The Supper at Emmaus" by Coypel (1746), a "Annunciation" by Fra Angelico, "St. Francis room" by Noël Hallé (18th century), "Saint John and Saint Peter healing a lame" by Carle Van Loo (1742).
