In 1988 Jean-Marc Cicchero reassembled the former

choir organ of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in place of a

former organ of an unknown builder. The current organ

was built by John Abbey at the end of the 19th century.

It was restored by Joseph Gutschenritter in 1938 and

1950. The organ is renovated in 2018.

The current church is the third place of worship on the site. In 1551, a first chapel was built. It was destroyed in 1590 by the League during the siege of Paris by Henry IV. In April 1628, Queen Anne of Austria laid the foundation stone for a new church, erected as a parish in 1673. Following the outrages suffered during the Revolution, it threatened to fall into disrepair and was rebuilt by Étienne-Hippolyte Godde, architect of the Paris municipality, in 1823, in a neo-classical style. It has a baptistery by immersion in the choir.
