In 1787, Marie-Antoinette laid the first stone of what would become the present church Saint-Clodoald. Napoleon III fijnished the project in 1863. The church is designed by Jean-François Delarue (1815-1892) in a Romanesque Gothic style.
Photo: Jeroen de Haan The Grand Organ of the Saint-Clodoald church is derived from a small series of Cavaillé-Coll manufacture, ordered in 1876. The primitive instrument, with 15 stops (19 stops with borrowings), had two 56-notes manual keyboards and a 30-notes pedalboard. Charles Gounod played because he owned a villa in Saint-Cloud located not far from the church. The reception took place on August 25, 1877. It was revised by Cavaillé-Coll in 1899 who took care of the combination pedals. The first major reshuffle took place in 1926 with the implementation of an expressive positive of 10 stops by the organ-builder Auguste Convers. This transformation was not success. In 1956 a new electric console was installed, but this was not enough to guarantee normal use of the instrument, which remained silent for several years. In December 1995, the decision was made to restore it and the reconstruction took shape in 2003 with: The reconstruction of the Cavaillé-Coll stops in their original state, The reconstruction of other stops with existing equipment or the addition of new registers. The instrument was inaugurated in 2006. Source
