The 74-stop instrument, originally by Girardet (1719), completely rebuilt by Clicquot (1784) and increased in the 19th century by Merklin-Schuetze, told of the great French Romantic school of organ building.
Let’s get together and help recover such a historic and multi-layered cultural heritage.
As stated in the call: „Promote the fact that the European cultural world is called upon to get involved together. I think that with briefing and engagement we can promote the idea of reconstructing the organ of Nantes. Together we might be able to contribute to the involvement of institutions and people who have the skills and resources to complete such a work.“
