France: Poitiers Cathedral

The organ in Poitiers Cathedral underwent major renovation completed in 1994. This stamp was issued to mark the completion. The original organ was built by Francois-Henri Clicquot beginning in 1787. The organ has a long and rich history. Here is a detailed history. At the bottom of the page is a nifty shot of the pipework from above.
