The Jacques-Decour High School and the chapel were built in 1876 on the site of the Montmartre slaughterhouses,demolished in 1867.
In 1893, a organ was built by a so-called ‘Muret’ . Is it Suret? Typical of the accompanying organs of that time, the instrument consisted of 8 stops. Very degraded due to infiltrations, the instrument was replaced by a Polyphone. Then, Hervé Braun, a student of the high school, launched a construction project for a new instrument. From 1974 to 1982, the instrument was built by former students and teachers under the guidance of the organ builder Swiderski, who harmonized the instrument. The organ consists of 20 stops over two manuals and pedal. It is of neo-Baroque aesthetics and was inaugurated in 1982.
