OPUS 699

The organ designed by Cavaillé-Coll has a disposition very similar to the stoplists featured in the brochure published in 1891 by the company, entitled Orgues de tous modèles.

Likewise, the organ case, as we can see it on the different installation plans, looked like the type No.9 of the same catalogue (picture opposite).

Apparently, the organ has not been built as it was planned in the quotation though: no case was expected while the different archives are mentioning it and the action has been crafted in a more traditional way than the one described by Cavaillé-Coll.
