This organ has a long history. It was built for the Collégiale Saint-Benoît-le-Bétourné and transported to Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas by Claude-Francois Clicquot in 1792. Its case contains parts of the original organ built by Jean Langhedul (1587). Therefore, this organ has the oldest still visible case-parts of all organs in Paris! The positif goes back to 1640 and the main concept of the GO to 1655. The extension of the GO dates from 1792. The instrument was reconstructed in 1887 by Merklin, with one consoe for both the GO and the choirorgan (!). In 1971, Alfred Kern built a new instrument in a French- German classical style (with the organ of the Saint- Séverin finished in 1964 as example) in a reconstructed organcase, re-using some of the old stops (3 stops are from before the revolution, 11 stops from Merklin).
