To be clear, this console is indeed the one built by Bernard Aubertin for the Souvigny municipal museum: a copy of the console of the real organ. It was then sold to an individual who never used it. Stored in an unheated and fairly humid shed, it had deteriorated over time and had become unplayable. It was recovered by the diocese of Moulins who entrusted its restoration to Phlippe Langrange and Pïerre Ouillon, who can be seen on the video. This console, now well maintained, is working perfectly again. There was installed a Hauptwerk 4.2 system and a beta bersion of the future sample set of the Chaise-Dieu organ (Jospeh Basquin). It is visible on request at the diocesan house of Moulins.

Thank you Gerard for the explanations and details about this console.
The upcoming sample set of the Chaise-Dieu" looks very promising,
