St Philibert, Tournus

Another of my favourite churches, also visited last year, was that of St. Philibert at Tournus in Burgundy. A beautiful Romanesque church, it has a remarkably light-filled interior. The sanctuary has been sensitively re-reordered in recent years by the same artist responsible for the new sanctuary at Chartres. The Church posesses a fine Baroque organ which is capable of some very- to English ears- un-churchly noises which can be, nevertheless, quite invigorating!
