Alexis Chauvet (1837 1871) could have been one of the major names in the area of the French organ at the XIXth century.  Getting his first appointment at the age of elveven, he obtained his First organ Prize at the Conservatoire in 1860 and became successively organist of four Parisian instruments entirely built or rebuilt by Cavailé-Coll, including St.Merry and the Trinité.  He died too early for showing his full worth, but among both volumes he left for the organ, some works are very remarkable as far as Chauvet opened a totally new way by using modal items.  Franck dedicated him his Fantasy in C and soon followed him on the same track (Fantasy in A, Third Chorale) as will do Fauré, only eight years younger than Chauvet.  By the way, Faurean formulas are already present in Chauvet's works.
