The Notre-Dame-d'Auteuil church was built in 1877-1892 in
a Romanesque-Byzantine style by the architect Joseph-
The organ was built by Cavaillé-Coll in 1884-85, with two
manuals (Grand-Orgue and Récit expressif), including 32
stops. In 1937 a Positif expressif was added by the Gloton-
Debierre firm, without changing the voicing of the original
Cavaillé-Coll stops. The organ was also electrified and a
new console was installed. Gloton shifted the pedal chests
to the lateral galleries, added a 32’ Soubasse and placed
both Positif swellboxes into the space freed in the main
case by the displacement of the Pedal division. On the GO,
a Fourniture IV, Cymbale IV and a Flûte douce 4’ was added.
On the Récit, a Nasard 2 2/3 and a Fourniture IV was added.
On the pedal, also a Fourniture IV was added and the 32-
16-8 Flûtes foundations were duplicated.
In 1962-8, Jacques Picaud and Jacques Barbéris, from
Beuchet-Debierre organbuilding firm, carried out a cleaning
and they replaced the 1937 Positif mutation stops by new
ones of narrower scale and changed the mutation stops of
the GO. They also added a Cornet on the GO.
In 1884, a restoration was carried out by Jacques Barbéris
(cleaning, releathering of the bellows, revision of the stop
action, the collection box, reservoirs, air leaks, general
regulation of contacts, electros, key action, etc..).
A new, comprehensive restoration was carried out by Denis
Lacorre in 2015-2018. All mixtures were revised, and a
Unda maris 8 (GO) and a cornet décomposé (POS) were
added, as well as a new computer, including sostenutos
and a ‘coupure pédale’.
