Denis' organ from 1589 with a rich Renaissance case.

All very grand and celebratory in its day . . . I note from looking at plans of the building that the axis is changed at the west end - perhaps that is associated with the town walls to which you have referred ?

@Ronnie 2¢: Yes, the axis is a bit deviating: while the 10th century building was heading east, the westwork has been added not until the 12th century. The southern parts were the old cloisters which didn't survive; today this is Place St Denis. (Here's the source for that information; unfortunately I couldn't find any leaflets / guides in the church.)
Love those dark eyebrows over the window eyes! the lighting is fantastic!

@Christine Walsh: Paid with heavy noise in the photo, therefore it's a bit smaller than usual!
