Henri Mulet was a French organist and composer. He was born on 17 October 1878 in Paris, France, and died on 20 September 1967 in Draguignan, France.
Most of his published compositions were for the organ. His works for organ have been called "expressive in a post-Romantic manner."
He won first prize for cello in Delsart's class in 1893. He won second prize for organ in 1897. He studied organ with Guilmant and Widor. He served as an organist in several churches in Paris; he was a professor at the Ecole Niedermeyer and at the Schola Cantorum.
In 1937 Mulet burnt his manuscripts and left Paris for Draguignan in Provence. Most of his surviving music is largely unknown.
He served as organist at the cathedral in Draguignan until 1958, and entrusted himself to the care of the monks at the abbey there. He was married but had no children. He spent the last 30 of his 89 years in seclusion.
