The organ of the Church of the Holy Spirit dates from the seventeenth century when the construction of the church began in 1706: it was commissioned by the Grand Carmes of Aix for their chapel.
The 1669 case which was made by Adolphe Dumas after plans by Jean-Claude Rambot, and the instrumental part made by Charles Royer in 1676, are listed historical monuments.
Many of the pipes were re-used by Moitessier during reconstruction in 1850. In the 20th century the organ was given pneumatics by Merklin and underwent two restorations by Dunand and Guillemin.
