  • The organ with mechanical action and slider chests in the church of Gerbéviller (Meurthe-et-Moselle (54)) ( was made by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in 1865. In 1922 François Didier carried out an overhaul, with the mechanics largely replaced. Part of the pipework was also renewed by him. The instrument was restored in 1993-1994 by Nicolas Toussaint. On June 5, 1994 the organ was re-inaugurated with a concert by Michel Chapuis.
  • The organist of the church has installed a new pedal board with 27 keys instead of the original 18.
