Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts

The Church

The church was built by architect Roy between 1902 and 1903 in a néogothique style.

The organ

Originally, the great organ of the Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts was built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in 1894 for the personal hotel of the Baron de l’Espée in Paris. This organ was transferred to the new Church of Saint-Antoine by Merklin/Gutschenritter in 1909. In 1956, Pierre Chéron and Philippe Hartmann worked on the organ and added a 4' Clarion to pedal. In 1982, Jacques Barberis, assisted by Marc Hédelin and Philippe Mattéi, accomplished a comprehensive restoration. In 1992-1992 Yves Fossaert cleaned and repaired the organ and replaced the Clairon 4’ of 1956 for a new one.
