ORGANS OF PARIS 2.0 © Vincent Hildebrandt HOME S-Z
The original instrument was made by Victor Gonzalez
in 1939. The buffet (covered with varnished zinc
sheets) was made by the sculptor Jean Touret, author
of the altar "face the people" of ND of Paris, which
unfortunately disappeared during the fire. Slightly
damaged during World WarII, it was restored and re-
harmonized by Gonzalez in 1952.
In 1977, it was completely rebuilt by Alfred Kern of
Strasbourg. The latter added 11 stops and achieved
harmony based on the harmony performed at St
Séverin. It was inaugurated by Michel Chapuis on
March 24, 1977.
Originally, the instrument was on a small platform in
the choir (now Chapel of the Sacrament)
