source Historic Monument:
An organ has been attested in the church of Saint-Pierre de Saumur since 1475. The organ of Ambroise Levasseur, dated 1638, is plundered in 1793. The parish replaces the instrumental part by that coming from the convent of Cordeliers de Saumur. It was modified in 1850 by Louis Bonn who replaced part of the piping with elements from the Notre-Dame-la-Riche church in Tours.
