ORGANS OF PARIS 2.0 © Vincent Hildebrandt ALL ORGANS
From January, 7, 2019 onwards for a period of three
years, this organ will be silent, being covered with a
hammer-cloth for protection during restoration works
of the roof of the church. Some concerts are moved to
Temple du Foyer de l'Âme.

The current organ was built in 2004-2005 by Bernard
Aubertin. Its design is based on the style of Zacharias
Hildenbrandt, who was one of Johann-Sebastian Bach's
favorite organ builders.
The church was originally equipped with an organ built by
Lesclop in 1745. It was destroyed during the Revolution and
only a drawing of the buffet reached us. It was not until
1888 that Father Bossuet, parish priest, had an organ buffet
installed at his own expense, which remained empty for
many years because of the lack of money from the parish,
which could only rent a small Merklin organ of 15 stops. In
1923, it was finally possible to house an instrument of 34
stops in this vast buffet. The instrument was built by Mutin
and survived unaltered at the dawn of the 20th century. It is
now stored, waiting for a new home. Of the former organ of
Mutin, only two statues were conserved and placed on the
top of the new organcase.
