  • The main organ in the church of Saint Sebastien in Nancy is the largest piece of work that’s build by Dalstein & Haerpfer. It was completed in August 1881. Construction consultant was Auguste Rigault. The organ with slider chests and mechanical action is strongly inspired by the work of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. The reeds were ordered in Paris. Yet the organ has both French and German traits.
  • The instrument was restored in 1936 by the Jacquot-Lavergne company. They placed two new couplers, between Positif and Récit and a pedal couple on the Récit. The Effet-d’Orage and a general couple were removed for this. Furthermore, nothing has changed in the organ.
  • In 2004 the companies Laurent Plet and Jean-Baptiste Gaupillat were commissioned for a restoration, which was ended in June 2009.
