ORGANS OF PARIS 2.0 © Vincent Hildebrandt ALL ORGANS
It was in 1923 that the current instrument was installed by
Charles Mutin. This new instrument was followed by a small
16-stop Merklin organ installed in the choir and used
transiently, the old great organ having become unplayable.
The great organ Mutin Cavaillé-Coll was restored by Gloton-
Debierre in 1936. In 1947, Beuchet-Debierre undertook a
major restoration and transformation that led to an
inaugural concert by Maurice Duruflé. From the 1960s on,
the instrument slowly degraded and became completely
unusable in 1982. In 1992, after a decade of silence , it was
finally restored by Bernard Dargessies, who added 7 stops.
Note that the small buffet in the center of the railing is
dummy and recalls the presence of an earlier organ.
