Saint-Philippe-du-Roule was built in 1774-1784 on the place of a former chapel. It was designed by Jean- Francois Chalgrin, with reference to ancient Roman basilicas. It was an example for many other churches (e.g. St-Pierre-du-Gross-Callou, Nrtre-Dame-de- Lorette,. Saint-Denis-du-Saint- Sacrement and Notre- Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle). The church was extended by an ambulatory and some chapels, designed by Hippolyte Godde (1843- 1847) et Baltard (1853).
Photo: Jacques Clément The first organ was the former organ of the Jacobins' church of St. Honoré street (worked on in 1779 by Francois-Henry Clicquot), transported to St-Philippe-du- Roule by Somer, inaugurated in 1799. It was completely rebuilt by Joseph Merklin in 1861. Charles Mutin built a new instrument in 1903. Only the case of the Positif was preserved, but no pipes dated from before the revolution survived. Abbey renovated the organ in 1922. Renaud restaurated the organ in 1991, adding two stops. Futher works were done by Fossaert / Pellerin&Uys in 2009. In 2019, extensive work on roofs, vaults and ceilings required the removal and protection of the entire instrument. All the piping of the Grand-Orgue, Positive and Pedal is transferred to the workshop of Jean-Baptiste Gaupillat for storage while the buffet is fully "enceded" in order to preserve it during the work in the church. This work is a pretext for a general dusting of the instrument as well as a small repairs. It’s also an opportunity to put into operation the 32' Soubasse placed at an unknown time but whose installation has remained unfinished. This heavy handling work is carried out in collaboration with Laurent Plet. 2019-2022: Partial removal and re-inslatallation of the Great Organ as part of roof restoration works.
