 The Quatuor Saint Jean is named after the Saint Jean Chapel, constructed in 1678 in what is now the garden of Le Petit Saint Jean, Pertuis, where the quartet rehearse.
 It was built by Jean Boyer, a priest from Pertuis, who requested in his will to be buried there when he died. Every year on the anniversary of the birth of Saint John the Baptist a mass was said in this little chapel.

 The chapel was still used for services up to 1905, but was then abandoned and left to fall into ruins. In 2002 it was stabilised to prevent further decay and to give a fitting resting place to its founder who died aged 84.
