The tribune organ was originally an Abbey from the 1920s,
bought in 1949 from the composer François Ninnin: it was
then reputed to come from a Parisian cinema (either the
Imperial cinema, the Capitol or the Luxor). The installation
work, unsatisfactory, was completed by Louis Eugène-
Rochesson who installed a new console. The harmonisation
was done by Maurice Gouaut. The installed organ was
inaugurated by Gaston Litaize on May 7, 1950.
In 1961-1962, Beuchet-Debierre carried out a major
renovation work on the instrument (in particular the wind
chests and expressive boxes).
In 1988, the salon organ of Mme Dujarric's mansion in
Boulogne-Billancourt was donated to the parish of Sainte-
Odile. Given the financial budget, the piping was not
reinstalled, but preserved.
In 1995 the instrument was enlarged by Daniel Birouste,
with some stops from the Dujarric organ, in particular the
beautiful Voix humaine and the reed stops.
In 2021, the bell set from the Dujarric organ, which was
located in Saint-Joseph-des-Nations (11th arrondissement)
was bought by the parish and incorporated into the organ.
Currently an ambitious project to reconstruct the
instrument to rebuild the Dujarric organ, respecting its
1930s aesthetics, is being studied.
Organ of the week chapel
In 2021, the parish received a small John Abbey organ that is
said to date from the 1830s. It is one of the first organs of
this builder who was then still established at 319 rue St
The instrument is entirely expressive, but the expression
seems to be later than its construction.
The keyboards are retractable when closing the console.
