CAEN - St Peter

 

In continuity with our 1994 organ in Lessay, we wished to build an instrument capable of authentically playing two very different esthetics : French classic and German baroque.

This 38 stop organ is the result of a strong collaboration with Philippe Lefèbvre, titular organist of Notre-Dame de Paris, and with the titular organists of St-Pierre.

The case was designed by architect Henri Hémon. As in the Lessay organ, we wanted the organ to be an extension of the architectural surroundings while affirming its modern origin.

Its unusual stoplist requires an explanation to be found by clicking the options below. Short recorded excerpts are also available.
