Originally, the great organ of the Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts was built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in 1894 for the personal hotel of the Baron de l’Espée in Paris. This organ was transferred to the new Church of Saint- Antoine by Merklin/Gutschenritter in 1909. In 1956, Pierre Chéron and Philippe Hartmann worked on the organ and added a 4' Clarion to pedal. In 1982, Jacques Barbéris, assisted by Marc Hédelin and Philippe Mattéi, accomplished a comprehensive restoration. In 1992-1992 Yves Fossaert cleaned and repaired the organ and replaced the Clairon 4’ of 1956 for a new one.
Before the French Revolution, the territory corresponding to the 12th arrondissement belonged to the parish of Saint Paul and then to the sainte- Marguerite estate. But two establishments had the privilege of exercising the "cure of soul": the abbey of Cistercian nuns of Saint-Antoine des Champs and the hospice of the Quinze-Vingts, the foundation of St. Louis. The abbey was abolished in 1790 and the monastery assigned to St. Anthony's Hospital in 1795. The new parish of Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts was created on 4 February 1791 and received the abbey as a place of worship. It was sold as a national property in 1798 and then destroyed. The chapel of the Quinze-Vingts hospice served as a parish church for a century, until the construction of the present church, which was completed in 1903 and dedicated to Saint Anthony the Great on November 11, 1909.
