The choir organ Built by John Abbey in 1838, it was originally an instrument consisting of 2 keyboards and 8 stops and a pedal of 18 notes. In 1900, Merklin transformed it to 12 stops. In 1961, Jean Hermann added mixtures. Between 1976 and 1980, complete re-harmonization by Maciet. Due to its current composition, the instrument is close to a neo-classical aesthetic. In September 2019, following the fire in Notre-Dame de Paris, a general tuning was done before the transfer of the daily offices of Notre-Dame de Paris to this church. Harmonium It is a German Hofberg harmonium in very good condition. Its composition is particularly representative of this type harmonium. Lars Magnus Hofberg (1862-1919) came originally from Sweden, he worked with Theodor Mannborg in Germany in the 1890s before founding his own harmonium factory in Leipzig. He specialized in the manufacture of aspiring harmoniums (including models with 2 keyboards and pedals). After his death, his heirs continued to manufacture harmoniums under the same name until 1930.
