The organs of Paris
ORGANS OF PARIS 2.0 © 2018 Vincent Hildebrandt HOME S-Z
The church St. Gabriel's Church was built on the site of the former gas plant, demolished in 1932-1933. It was not until 1938 that Saint-Gabriel was established as an independent parish of his parish-mother, the Immaculate Conception. Masses with organ Saturday at 6:30 p.m., Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. The organ The instrument was built by the brothers Chrétien and Laurent Steinmetz of Herrlisheim (67) in 1982. Its design is inspired by the Alsatian aesthetic typical of this period. As the financial resources were limited, the construction was made at a low price, using materials of various origins: an important part comes from a late Cavaillé-Coll salon organ that would have belonged to Marcel Dupré; pipes were recovered from the previous organ of the church; other materials of varying provenance and uneven quality have also been reused. In 2006, the instrument was restored by the Klais Firm of Bonn, which installed two additional stops (Hautbois 8' and Flûte Harmonique 8')
