Organists all over the world can breath eased up, after it is now clear that Notre Dames iconic organ has survived the fire that ravaged the cathedral on Monday evening.
It writes the AP.
the Organ is the largest in France, so the country's organists feared the worst:
I thought, that if the organ was destroyed, it was a part of me that had been destroyed, " said Vincent Dubois, one of the cathedral's organists, to nyedsbureauet.

the 38-year-old Vincent was only a teenager when he first was allowed to unfold at the iconic instrument that counts the staggering 8.000 orgelpiber.
It was therefore a relieved man on Wednesday could make the status after the deathly ravages.
- It is a love story. To hear the sound of the instrument in this magical place transforms it's a man, says Vincent Dubois.
- Now the instrument just dusted and cleaned of soot.
the Clean-up can, however, go and be a longer process, since the entire organ must be disassembled before you can clean it completely.
therefore, It is also too early to say exactly when the worshippers can once again enjoy the music from the many orgelpiber.
It is not the first good news that has come out after the fire. First, it emerged that several irreplaceable artifacts were saved from the church. Later it emerged that the wealthy minority and the women were ready to throw millions and millions after the reconstruction.
