The current organ was built by Cavaillé-Coll for the living room of Baron Émile Friedrich d'Erlanger, a very wealthy music-loving banker who lived in Paris (which explains the beautiful decoration of its buffet and its façade pipes). This organ was donated by the Baron's heirs to the City of Paris, then installed in this church in the spring of 1987 by the Renaud postman. Mounted on a podium of about sixty centimeters, this organ has not undergone any transformation and its composition and that of origin.
