Contributed by admin on Feb 11, 2016 - 10:25 AM

Founded in 2011, the "Orgue en France" association has given itself the mandate of taking inventory of all organs, whether in playing order or in disrepair in France. According to information pulled from its website, France holds five centuries of the craft of organ-making; 10,000 organs; hundreds of other organ societies/associations; 200 classes of  organs; 80 enterprises of organ-makers and hundreds of thousands of organ lovers.

It's most recent project is to find and inventory lost and forgotten organs in France. They have thus far ...

compiled a list or lost organs, but call on the general public to join the project and send the association any location of any such organs.
