Saint-Sulpice is one of the largest churches in Paris, only slightly smaller than Notre-Dame. The church was founded in 1646 and not completed until 1745. The classicising façade in Italian style (1732) was designed by Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni. The south tower was never completed (due the the revolution).

Photo: Jeroen de Haan The organ of Saint-Sulpice was built in 1781 by Francois- Henri Clicquot. The case was designed by Chalgrin, the architect of the church itself. In 1834-1846 the organ was reconstructed by Callinet/Daublaine-Callinet/Ducroquet, 46 of the 64 Clicquot stops were reused. In 1862 Aristide Cavaillé-Coll built a new organ, using much of the work of Clicquot (approximatley 50 stops of Clicquot were (re)used competely or partly). After 1973, the Plein Jeu of the postif and the Fourniture of the Grand Choeur were altered, but these alterations were undone by Renaud in 1991 during a comprehensive restauration of the instrument. This organ is an authentic Cavaillé-Coll and one of the few larger organs of this builder which is NOT electrified! It is a magnificant instrument, in a church with very good acoustiscs.
