The Walloon Church (Waalse Kerk) in Amsterdam dates from the year
1409. At that time, it was the chapel of a monastery, the
Paulusbroederklooster. Not long after the year 1578, when
Amsterdam converted to protestantism, the building was put at the
disposal of the french-speaking protestant refugees from the
Southern Netherlands and France.
Ever since, now for more than 400 years, the church has been the domain of the Walloon Community, and every sunday there is a service - in French, of course.
The organ in the church was built by Christian Müller, who also made the famous organ in the St.Bavo Church in Haarlem. The fine acoustics of the Walloon Church make the place a perfect venue for concerts and cd-recordings.
The website is wholly in Dutch, but contains several nice old prints, and a list of upcoming concerts which certainly will be comprehensible:
