This organ was built in 1845-1846 by Aristide
Cavaillé-Coll and inaugurated by Louis-Nicolas Séjan
and the organists of La Madeleine Fessy and Saint-
Saëns. The buffet-style "Italian Renaissance" was
designed by the architect Huvé. The instrument
consisted of 48 stops over 4 keyboards and a pedal.
Its free standing console was a novelty (for Cavaillé-
Coll). The Voix Céleste was the first ever built
During the past centuries, various modifications
were realized, among which an electrification of the
traction in 1971 and the addition of two chamades
in 2002 (as already intended by Cavaillé-Coll in
1846). It has now 60 stops and still includes 95% of
the original pipes of Cavaillé-Coll.
