Hi David and Charlie, Where is Paradiseland? http://www.engelberg.ch/en/index.phpNow about the church; central Switzerland is mainly protestant/reformed denomination. Engelberg is at the end of a remote upper valley in cul de sac where a catholic congregation built this monastery and church long ago as a kind of island in non catholic territory. The organ there is said to be the largest in the country and one of the biggest in Europe - and the interior shot was taken while music was still being palyed after an end of term service for the (religious) secondary school.
Phil, Thanks for that, I've never been there. I will certainly fix thatnext time I'm in CH. A bit of heaven indeed. :-)
I looked the organ up and it has 157 ranks and a bit more than 9000 pipes, larger than any in France, including Notre Dame de Paris.
