After being in charge of the organ at the church of Saint-Nicolas des Champs in Paris, Batiste (1820 1876) was the celebrated organist of Saint-Eustache during more than twenty years.  The organ had just been entirely rebuilt by Ducroquet in the famous case by Baltard (still there now), and used the latest features of organ building : four manuals, Barker lever, Reeds ventils, broad Récit with swell box and 16ft stops, large Pedal with 32ft stops.
Aside of his large organ works, Batiste wrote shorter pieces with no technical difficulty as Offertoires, Communions, Verses etc, using the usual romantic registrations (various Foundations, Full organ, Vox humana, Oboe...) with an elementary optional Pedal.  Elegantly set out, they provide numerous and beautiful discoveries.
