Cavaille-Coll Organ of Saint-Sulpice Church, PARIS
   
The actual organ attributed to Aristide Cavaille-Coll (1862) is based on an fantastic classic organ by Francois-Henri Clicquot (1732-1790) with its magnificent case designed by Jean-Francois Chalgrin (1739-1811).
This is one of the finest instruments of Aristide at his highest point. He esteems the original character of Clicquot pipes as carefully as possible, this is the way he made success in realizing the harmony between a classic organ and a symphonic one in unequaled level. Its splendid console with its stop knobs arranged in amphitheatrical manner shows clearly its orchestral character.
Restored recently by Jean Renaud (1991).
