Choir Organ

The Choir Organ is built in a French-classical style. The current organ originates from 1968, with the buffet, the part of the cabinet-work which encloses the pipes, dating back to the 1860s. It was designed by Viollet-le-Duc, who was responsible for the comprehensive restoration of Notre-Dame Cathedral at the time.

Status of the Choir Organ

In contrast to the Grand Organ, the Choir Organ suffered from major water damage as firefighters worked to put out the blaze on April 15, 2019. Only the metal pipes could be salvaged, and so the organ will need to be entirely rebuilt. 

Efforts to rebuild the Choir Organ began in 2021.
