Long Description:
FR Les archives de la Basilique Saint Pierre font mémoire de la construction d'un orgue en 1555. Durant la révolution, il disparaît comme tous ceux d'Avignon.

En 1819, l'&église Saint Pierre confie la construction d'un orgue neuf à Ludovivico Plantanida, facteur d'orgue milanais

En 1862, le facteur d'orgue toulousain Théodore Puget complète l'orgue de Plantanida. L'instrument comportait alors 2 claviers, 25 jeux et un pédalier de 20 notes. L'orgue sera à nouveau restauré par la maison Puget en 1892 et en 1925. Actuellement, il comporte trois claviers, 37 jeux et un pédalier de 30 notes

In 1862, the Toulouse organ builder Théodore Puget completed the Plantanida organ. The instrument then had 2 keyboards, 25 stops and a 20 note pedalboard. The organ was restored again by the Puget house in 1892 and 1925. Currently, it has three keyboards, 37 stops and a 30 note pedalboard.
