ORGANS OF PARIS 2.0 © Vincent Hildebrandt ALL ORGANS
The organ case is built by Loret (1862, great organ)
and Haerpfer-Ermann (1977, positif). The organ of
Loret was entirely renewed by Cavaillé-Coll in 1891
(31 stops). Maintenance was done by Mutin in 1924,
without making changes to the instrument. In 1947,
the salicional and the cornet were replaced by a
nasard and a tierce. The salicional bass pipes in
façade became silent, but were left in place.
In 1977, Haerpfer-Ermann conducted a full
restoration and added a Positif of eleven stops. In
1998 maintenance works were carried out by
Koenig in association with Philippe Emeriau. The
organ was completely disassembled and cleaned,
the worn parts replaced. Mechanics were reviewed.
The keyboard, the salicional, the cornet and the
Cavaillé-Coll parts of the organ were restored. On
the positive, the Clairon was replaced by a
Cromorne. In 2012, the same builders carried out
new maintenance works, including the installation
of a computer.
