The grand organ was built by Joseph Arnaud Fermis in 1878. He used the new pneumatic tubular traction developed in 1866. In 1880, an overhaul was carried out by the house Cavaillé-Coll. In 1923, following the failure of the traction, the factors Ephrem and Gonzalez rebuilt the instrument. The work consisted of revising the harmonization, replacing the pneumatic system for drawing the stops , redisposing the combination pedals and adding an expressive box to the positive. At that time, the instrument had 58 stops, 31 of which were expressive. In 1957, the Müller factor carried out maintenance work on the instrument. Under the impetus of Gaston Litaize, the composition was modified according to the neo-classical aesthetic then in vogue. In 1993-1994, Bernard Dargassies renovated the instrument. The work included the repair of the buffet, the complete electrification of the instrument, the restoration and replacement of part of the piping, and the replacement of the console with a more ergonomic eclectic console.
