"The organ is the grandest, the most daring, the most magnificent of all instruments invented by human genius. It is a whole orchestra in itself. It can express anything in response to a skilled touch" - Balzac
Descriptif Orgue de Bourg d’Oisans
These words by Balzac are a perfect illustration of the feeling of admiration we share in the presence of the Collette-Anne Organ, or the Organ of the Resurrection, in Bourg d'Oisans Church. Five years of reflection, doubts and work... creating perfect harmony between the complex architecture of the church and this majestic instrument. A subtle, carefully designed and accepted marriage between tradition and modernity. The adventure of its creation is the result of everything that drives human beings forward: audacity, imagination, inventiveness, open-mindedness, an ability to work together, the pooling of experience, passion, respect and listening. Yes, this Organ is all these things. A cultural "object" that comes to life the moment you set eyes on it.
