Although the cathedral in Albi dates back to 1287 it took 200 years to complete. even still, it is far older than its organ which dates only from 1736. Still old enough to qualify as old, I think. You'll have to trust me that it can also be very loud when required, or watch and listen to this video.
You could also say that some of the patterns on the walls are loud. they may look modern in their geometric design but they date from the 1500s. If I had them in my living room I'd have a perpetual headache. Here though, the effect is amazing.
My photos are not all they might be because, quite rightly, they don't allow any artificial light inside, and I'm not about to start carrying a tripod around with me.
