The ‘Chapelle de Jésus-Enfant’ was built between
1878 and 1881 by the architect Hippolyte
Destailleur at the initiative of Abbot Hamelin, first
Rector of the Basilica of Sainte-Clotilde, to
accommodate the children of the Catechism. The
Chapel is therefore also called ‘Chapelle des
catéchismes’. Its style is English neo-Gothic.
The organ was built originally by Cavaillé-Coll as
the choir organ of St Roch (Paris I) and was shown
at the Exposition of 1839. It was bought by the
Lutherian church Temple des Billettes (Paris IV) in
1842. In 1988, the organ was moved to the
Chapelle de Jésus-Enfant by Jean Renaud from
Nantes, who rebuilt the instrument in a new, neo-
gotic case designed by the architect Mouffle.
All mechanics are new, only for the stop-
mechanics some older materials were used. All
stops are old, with the exception of the Octavin 2'
of the Swell.
