The organ and organ case : A treasure at the heart of the cathedral
Records suggest an organ already existed in the cathedral but it was probably partially destroyed during the French Revolution. In 1790, the current organ was bought from the abbey of Savigny Le Vieux and stored in the Circata. In 1812, it was rebuilt with the remains of the original organ (especially the pipes) and then modified in 1932, and the organ as it is today was created.
It was electrified after the Second World War in 1955. The friends of the cathedral association initiated a restoration of the organ in 1976 because its condition required it, followed by a restoration of the organ case in 1984.
Today, it is possible to listen to this magnificent instrument during the masses organised in the cathedral and also during the recitals that regularly take place there.
