Most Parisian organs date from after the revolution. The 19th century was the era of Cavaillé- Coll, creator of the symphonic organ. In the 20th century, the romantic and symphonic styles of the 19th century were merged with the classic style from before the revolution, creating a new organ type on which the repertoire of all periods could be played: the neoclassical organ.
