Neo-Classic Organ of the Narbonne Cathedral
   
The organ of the Cathedral St-Juste-St-Pasteur in Narbonne (F-11100) was originally constructed by Christophe Moucherel (1686-1750) in 1741 the case of which remains today. This big instrument was completely restored (IV keyboards / Pedal / 47 stops) by Jean-Francois Lepine (1770) and Dom Bedos praised it as one of the most beautiful organs in the epoch.
Transformed into a romantic organ by Campardon (1807), Loiselot (1833) and Puget Co. (1840 & 1858), it survived over the century. Maurice Puget restored it again in 1927 to form a pneumatic organ with unit system (III/P/68) which functioned quite well until 1980.
The actual organ was done by Bertyl Soutoul in 1998 (IV/P/67).
