This organ was the first Cavaillé-Coll organ built in Paris and until 1975 well preserved. In 1975-1978, Haerpfer-Erman completed a ‘restoration’ which became a complete disaster and a black page in the history of the French organ heritage. During this ‘restoration’, it was decided that 54 notes was not enough, so there was a re-make of the chests to have 56 notes. That made it necessary to replace the whole mechanics. And that made it necessary to replace the old console. To complete the disaster, the harmonisation was changed into a neo-baroque direction and the number of stops was extended from 41 to 48. Fortunately, the old console was not destroyed, but left behind somewhere on the organ loft and 31 stops of Cavaillé-Coll were preserved (albeit modified). In 2020, Yves Fossaert carried out extensive works, including a reconstruction of the original wind supply and parts of the mechanics. More information…
La construction de l’église a commencé en 1823 sous le règne de Louis XVIII et s’est achevée en 1836 sous le règne de Louis- Philippe, avec Louis-Hippolyte Lebas comme architecte. Georges Bizet reçoit son baptême à l’église le 16 mars 1840, tandis que le peintre Claude Monet est baptisé le 20 mai 1841. César Franck s’y est marié le 22 février 1848.
