Photo: Jeroen de Haan The organ case is made by Philippe Bertrand (1708). The instrument itself was built originally by Robert Clicquot in 1711. A major transformation was carried out by Cavaillé- Coll in 1873. In 1936, this organ was sold to the Séminaire de Châteaugiron (and later to the Saint Martin church in Rennes) and Victor Gonzalez made a recontruction of the Clicquot-instrument. In 1995, a completely new instrument was made by Jean- Loup Boisseau et Bertrand Cattiaux, aiming to recontruct (again) the creation of Robert Clicquot and the additions of Louis-Alexander and Francois-Henri Clicquot.
