    today's French organ builders....

    After doing some looking around, I have found very few organ builders in France. Muhleisen, Le Ludion (band organs), and Olivier Glandaz are the only names I came up with. Are there more? There must be!

    There's e.g. Pascal Quoirin and Gonzalez...
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Bernard Aubertin, Marc Hédelin (facteur d'orgue dans le Berry et à Versailles), Beuchet-Débierre were still working (as far as I know) in 2005*. Then there ie Jean-Loup Boisseau (son of Robert Boisseau) and Bertrand Cattiaux.

    Here is a link to a fairly comprehensive list, which is only a few years old:

    * However, I am unable to find any records of recent work by this firm.

    Yes, Pierre Cochereau did rock, and still does imho...
