Here's a really beautiful piece of music, the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi. The first four and half minutes is the most renowned part of the work.

The music was performed in 2009 in the Saint Denis Cathedral in Paris. The cathedral has an impressive history, the first church being built on the site in 475, and then enlarged on the orders of Dagobert I in the 7th century, with the current structure being completed in the 12th and 13th centuries. Most of the kings of France are buried there.

Some photos of the interior of the cathedral:
