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…
The construction of the church began in 1823 during the reign of Louis XVIII and was completed in 1836 during the reign of Louis-Philippe, with Louis-Hippolyte Lebas as architect. Georges Bizet received his baptism at the church on March 16, 1840, while the painter Claude Monet was baptized on May 20, 1841. César Franck was married there on February 22, 1848.
