ORGANS OF PARIS © 2023 Vincent Hildebrandt ALL ORGANS
The church had a Mutin organ (1914) with two keyboards.
Due to the poor condition of this instrument, it was
decided to build a new organ. The project presented jointly
by the Belgian organ manufacturer Thomas and the French
manufacturer Béthines-les-Orgues was selected.
The aesthetic chosen for the instrument was romantic
Rhineland. It is strongly inspired by that of the organ built
in Stavelot (Belgium) in 1841 by Willem Korfmacher. Some
of the piping of the previous instrument (in particular the
Swell) could be reused. The main features of the
3 manual keyboards, including one expressive swell
29 real stops
