Orgues Quoirin has restored the organ case of the
positif of the organ of Notre-Dame-de-Paris, made by
François-Henri Cliquot in 1783. It was removed in 1868
by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll because it did not fit into the
new design of the organ gallery by Viollet le Duc. There
are no plans to reinstall the positif on its original place.
It has been installed in the hall of the south tower,
above the original console of Cavaillé-Coll, which was
placed there years ago.
