Classic Organ of St-Cecile Cathedral, ALBI (F-81000)
   
The origin of the classic organ whose actual case remains original is attributed to Christophe Moucherel (1736). This gigantic organ (width : 16.2 m) has been restored by
Francois & Jean-Francois Lepine (1747), Joseph Isnard (1779), Antoine Peyroulous (1824).
Then transformed in romantic organ by Claude brothers (1840), Thibault Maucourt (1865), Puget Co. (1904).
After the study of the Historic Organ Committee in 1960s, they confied the restauration into a classic instrument to Schwenkedel in 1971 and finally to Bartholomeo Formentelli in 1977 who achieved it in 1981.
