The organ on the tribune is built by Abbey in 1900.
Remaining authentic until 1967, it was then the subject of
a series of unfinished transformations.
In 1967, Jean Hermann began electrifying the
transmission, the following year Gutschenritter
transformed the piping. In 1974, Gonzalez transformed
the wind chests and the buffet.
Very degraded following the restoration of the church in
1983, the instrumental part was dismantled and only the
buffet remained in place. Some of the pipes were then
integrated into the choir organ.
The choir organ comes from the Saint-Pierre de Chaillot
where it was installed by Mutin in 1907. Rebuilt in 1971 by
Beuchet (J. Picaud did the harmonization), it was
transferred to St Georges in 1995 by Bernard Dargassies
who reused part of the Abby piping from the great-organ .
