Church Saint-Jérôme Toulouse

Organ details


  • 1936: Maurice Puget
  • 2019: Restauration Manufacture Robert & Pesce

In 1936, Maurice Puget was commissioned to build the Great Organ of the Saint-Jérôme church,
For this he re-used the organ built by his uncle Baptiste Puget in 1882, which had itself replaced the Cavaillé-Coll organ now in Bédarieux.
The Grand Orgue de Saint-Jérôme is an instrument with pneumatic transmission, a system dating from the end of the 19th century. It is the last witness in Toulouse of an unjustly disparaged construction. The instrument is considered to be the little brother of the church of Saint-Salvy in Albi, whose quality is well known today.
The exceptional harmony of this organ makes it one of Maurice Puget's most beautiful creations and an ideal instrument for all the music of the late 19th and 20th centuries (Jehan Alain, Marcel Dupré, Maurice Duruflé, Olivier Messiaen). The roundness, the power and the quality of the fonds and reeds open it without difficulty to all symphonic music and beyond.
It was recently classified as a historical monument.
