Orgue de l'Eglise Notre Dame en Vaux à Châlons-en-Champagne
France

Notre Dame Collegiate Vaux in Châlons-en-Champagne. 

World Heritage of UNESCO in the framework of the Chemins de Saint Jacques de Compostela in France 
Notre-Dame-en-Vaux was a collegial, ie that it housed a community of canons. 
The present church was begun before 1157, replacing an earlier building that had collapsed. 
Its reconstruction was completed in 1217. Begun in style "transitional" (between Romanesque and Gothic), 
it was completed in Gothic style. 
There is a beautiful bed with apse flanked by two Gothic towers romanes (influence of the cathedral of Toul) 
but wonderful glass of the sixteenth century. There is also one of the largest carillon in Europe 
composed of 56 bells and dating from the nineteenth century.
Until the Revolution, who mutilated the portal south of Renaissance, it had 4 arrows (or even 5, if we count the 
small portion of the crossing). 3 were razed during the Revolution to reclaim their lead for military purposes; 
one was rebuilt from 1852 by the abbot of Champagne, the other two are still waiting to be. In the Middle Ages 
it had a venerable relic that attracted many pilgrims and made his fame: the relic of the saint-Navel of Christ 
destroyed in 1707 by the Bishop of Châlons.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
