During nearly two centuries, members of this family have succeeded one another continuously at Saint Gervais' organ. Their story begins in Louis XIV's time with Louis Couperin's appointment (1653) and ends a decade after Napoleon's time, at Gervais-François Couperin's death (1826).
The history of this instrument, connected in such a close way to a dynasty of musicians, allows to speak about it as of « the Couperins' organ ».
