The work for protection of the organ

The work for protection of the organ against water and fire is still in progress. The authority for historical monuments has lost us more than one year with various vetos and discussions. In a meeting in October 2022 they have finally promised a solution for January 2023. We are working together with the French organ journal « Orgues nouvelles » for a new publication of Aurélie Decourt’s big book with Jehan Alain’s letters and drawings and hope to have it ready for June 2023.
