MATOURY - Eglise Saint-Michel

Organ : 2 keyboards , pedalboard -23 stops



The instrument was built according to a classic plan: 2 sound divisions constituted by a positive at the edge of the gallery and by a main case in the back.

The case, of contemporary style, was drawn by following the slope of the church's roof. The carved decoration, painted and gilded with gold leaves, is inspired by the traditional art of the people Saramaca, implanted in Guiana.

The organ is put on a gallery made of angelica which copies the drawing and the technical principles of the church's skeleton.


The peculiarity of this instrument is to have both games of pedal, Bourdon 16' and Flute 8', hung against the side of the main case. These pipes are top-to-tail arranged and seem, seen from the outside, suspended in the space.
