18xx - Unknow builder

190x - Charles Mutin

1984 - Adrien Maciet

II/23 - mechanical traction - Stoplist

The congregation of the Holy Ghost acquired the land in 1731, but the construction of the chapel began in 1769 with the architect Nicolas Le Camus de Mézières. The work was interrupted and resumed in 1775 with the architect Jean-François Chalgrin. The organ was probably built in the first third of the 19th century. The date of construction and the name of the builder are unknown. A front- facing platform bears the date of 1848, the probable date on which the organ was laid in the chapel. It was redesigned at the beginning of the 20th century by Charles Mutin. He transformed the buffet and kept only the upper part, which was separated into two bodies on either side of the console. The instrument was equipped with pneumatic traction. In 1984, Adrien Maciet rebuilt the instrument by reconstituting the original buffet. He reused many pipes and completed the instrumental part with stops from an organ of Chéron at Mortain. A overhaul by Alain Léon is planned.
