Taught by his father, Jacques-Marie Beauvarlet-Charpentier (1766 † 1834) was organist at St-Victor, then at St-Germain des Prés and finally at St-Eustache, where in 1820 he supervised a restauration already calling for future (gamba-styled stops, Swell of fifty-four notes in swell-box).  Among his works, typically post-classical, one may find large Processionnal Marches with ‘military’ and ‘religious’ passages in turn, and also the first Sorties in the French organ History.
As other musicians in these times, in order to celebrate the victories of General Bonaparte, emperor Napoleon to be, Beauvarlet-fils also wrote a large Victory of the Army in Italy which makes use of every availability of the organ to show the battle, with marches, famous revolutionnary hymns, sudden attacks, canon shots, arrival of reinforcements, horse charges, escape of ennemies.  The result is Hollywoodian.
