Organiste titulaire

Yves Castagnet & Johann Vexo Videos Johan Vexo (Bach) Johann Vexo (Couperin) There is third organ, a portable instrument for continuo to accompany the Notre-Dame de Paris choir school’s ensembles and soloists (I/5).
The current choir organ is an instrument of Robert Boisseau in the old buffet constructed in 1863 and designed by Viollet-le-Duc, who was responsible for the comprehensive restoration of the cathedral at that time. Due to poor maintenance and unsuccesful restorations, the original instrument of Merklin was considered to be in such a poor condition that it could not be saved. Robert Boisseau built a new instrument of 28 stops (later 2 additional stops were added). In 1989, the Chalumeau of the pedal was replace by a Clairon. In 2005, the organ was cleaned by Philippe Guyonnet and tuned by Bertrand Cattiaux. In 2010, further works were carried out by Bertrand Cattiaux and a new console was installed. This organ is built in a French-classical style.
