The Protestant Swedish parish of Paris was founded in
1626. As early as the mid-18th century, cults were
celebrated in the chapel of the Swedish Embassy on Jacob
Street. The current place of worship was built between
1911 and 1913, it is a red brick building with Swedish-
Cult with organ
Sunday at 11am
Before the French Revolution, there was a small organ in
the chapel of the Swedish Embassy, which was the very
first organ located in a Protestant temple in Paris. The
instrument was probably dispersed during the French
Revolution and it is possible that some stops were
integrated into the organ of the Louvre Oratory after its
attribution to the Reformed cult. In the former Swedish
church, Cavaillé-Coll delivered a small organ which was
received on December 24, 1878. The instrument was
probably sold during the construction of the new church in
1910. In 1920, after the completion of the building, Charles
Mutin delivered a new instrument in an Art Deco buffet.
In 1932, Beuchet performed an overhaul and installed an
independent pneumatic-traction pedal.
In 1981, Haerpfer carried out a new overhaul in order to
adapt the instrument to the neo-classical aesthetic.
In 1990, the breathless instrument was replaced by a new
instrument built by the Swedish company Hammarberg.
The buffet was reused.
