Ste Trinité was built in 1861-1867 by Théodore Ballu. It is a rather personal mix of French and Italian gothic and renaissance styles.
C3 The great organ is one of Cavaillé-Coll's major works. Commissioned in 1864, it was inaugurated in 1869 by Camille Saint-Saëns, César Franck, Alexis Chauvet (the first titulaire), Henri Fissot and Charles-Marie Widor. The instrument. being considerably deteriorated during the events of the Commune, was completely rebuilt in 1871 by Cavaillé-Coll. The organ had 46 stops on 3 keyboards and pedalboard. Apart from the replacement of the Doublette 2' by the Quinte 2 2/3', the organ will remain so until 1901. In 1901, Mutin or Merklin made several modifications. In 1934-1935, a major restoration was carried out by Pleyel-Cavaillé-Coll including a complete restoration of the mechanics, the dusting of the pipes, the reharmonization of old stops, the addition of seven new stops (POS: Principal 8', Cor de nuit 8', Nasard 2 2/3', Tierce 1 3/5; REC: Bourdon 16', Nasard 2 2/3, Cymbale III), the addition of two combination pedals (introduction of the Pedal, low octave on the Great Organ), removal of the 4' Flutes from the reed windchest and their installation on that of the foundation stops and the addition of Barker levers to the Positive. The organ now has 53 stops. Between 1962-1967, Beuchet-Debierre carried out a third restoration and enlargement. The program of work included the complete electrification of the organ, the installation of a new console (the old one was dismantled and destroyed) as well as additional upper boards to the GO and Positive, appearance of a combinator with adjustable combinations, appearance of an expressive box to the Positive for the Cornet (decomposed) + Piccolo and Clarinet, and finally addition of 7 stops: POS: Clairon 4', Flageolet 2', Fourniture IV; REC: Bombarde 16', Tierce 1 3/5'; GO: Cymbale IV; PED: Plein Jeu IV. According to correspondence between Messiaen and Eugène Picaud (one of Beuchet's employees), Messiaen insisted that the stamps of Cavaillé-Coll remain unchanged. The organ now has 60 stops. In 1984, Sebire& Glandaz carried out some work. Olivier Messiaen asks that some background stops have a greater sound presence by increasing the intensity gradually towards the treble. Some reeds will also be increased in intensity and strength. Some teeth are reduced so that the whole is less "gambé" and that the attack of the notes is particularly clear and that the harmonization gives each stop a very specific luminosity. The highest pipes of the Piccolo are replaced by pipes of larger size. In 1992 and 1993, the same house carried out a complete overhaul of the organ. Olivier Messiaen wants the Cymbal of the Great Organ to be reduced. At his request, the fourth row is blocked on the entire extent of the keyboard except the last five notes and the third rank is also blocked on the large expanse of the keyboard (ut1 – sol3). In addition, the work includes: •all pipes are removed, overhauled, cleaned and repaired; •console rewiring; •Review of notes and stop controls; •thorough cleaning; •harmonization and general tuning. In 2004, Olivier GLANDAZ revised the organ.
