The organs of Paris
ORGANS OF PARIS © 2018 Vincent Hildebrandt HOME A-Z


Paris is the organ paradise on earth! This beautiful city houses around 260 organs. The oldest organs were built in the 16-18th century, A large quantity was built in the 19th century by the famous organ builder Aristide Cavaillé- Coll. Even now, regularly new organs are added to the fascinating and diverse organ landscape of Paris. 126 organs (among which 42 choir organs) are property of the city of Paris, which has only a yearly budget of 240.000 euros for maintenance and restoration works. A plan for the maintenance of this great cultural heritage has been made but the execution of it is hindered by financial constraints.
