Allen Organ Company is pleased to announce the installation of a digital-pipe combination organ in France. The organ at Abbatiale de Saint-Jean aux Bois includes 45 digital voices and 10 pipe stops with the console and digital voices by Allen Organ Company and the pipes and casework supplied by Bernard Dargassies of MVGO, France.
The church is an 800 year-old historic building located about 40 minutes from Paris in the Compiègne region. To comply with the church’s heritage and architectural style, the organ is positioned in the side of the nave, speaking toward the center. Fortunately, the building’s acoustics disperse the organ’s sound evenly throughout the sanctuary producing a spectacular result! The digital voices utilize 14 speaker cabinets installed behind the pipes which include a full-rank Trumpet en Chamade. Here is a video of an improvisation on the organ by Allen’s Paris dealer Jean-Philippe Le Trévou.
At Allen Organ Company, we take the art of organ building very seriously by building our instruments to a higher quality standard than our competitors. This video will show you some of the key reasons that make Allen Organ the world’s most chosen church organ.
Jean-Philippe Le Trévou, Allen’s longtime representative in France is also a
wonderful musician. Jean Philippe recently posted this video presentation of the
Historique-II, which shows the broad tonal capabilities of this unique yet modestly priced instrument.
