The hospital ''Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière was founded on the site of a gunpowder factory by Louis XIV. Its chapel Saint Louis was built around 1675 and designed by Libéral Bruand, architect of Les Invalides. It was built on the model of a Greek cross and features an octagonal dome in the centre and four central chapels each capable of holding a congregation of some 1,000 people.

Photo: Jeroen de Haan The initial builder is unknown, but an inscription on an old pipe indicates this organ was built by Briel, one of the co-workers of Deslandes in 1709-10. The organ is probably extended at the end of the 18th century. In 1861, a comprehensive reconstruction was carried out by Antoine Suret, adding a positive (which remained empty, built only to hide the console) and a récit expressif. In 1977, Müller reconstructed and extended the organ in a French classical style, adding pipes to the positive and transforming récit expressif into a récit in French baroque style. 9 out of the 31 stops date from before the revolution and 7 from Suret. Mechanical transmission.
