In addition, the organs were built along standardized lines. The compositions were smaller scale compared with those in other countries. The French organ school formed in the first half of the 17th century. It progressed from the strict polyphonic music of Jean Titelouze (c. –) to a unique, richly ornamented style with its own characteristic forms that made full use of the French classical mental in establishing this style were Louis Couperin (c. –), who experimented with structure, registration.   Presenting a fresh approach to French organ music, David Ponsford analyses the repertory from the reign of Louis XIV by genre.

His output included six organ symphonies as well as over fifty other works for organ, however the finale to his first organ symphony truly captures his style and massively contributed to the organ symphony genre.
