9. An object of pilgrimage
France's finest classical organ in working order, this instrument is an object of pilgrimage for organists, on the tour path for any serious fan of Couperin. Built for the convent of Les Jacobins in Toulouse in 1683, it was rebuilt and restored by various builders until its complete restoration in 1983. It can now be seen and heard at the church of St Pierre des Chartreux in Toulouse.
