Guilmant, (Félix) Alexandre

(Born; Boulogne-sur-Mer, 12 March 1837; Died; Meudon, 29 March 1911). French organist,composer and editor. Largely self-taught, he became well known throughout Europe and North America as a recitalist, also holding the post of organist at the Trinité, Paris, and teaching at the Schola Cantorum and the Conservatoire. The quality and range of the new Cavaillé-Coll organs that he played enabled him, with Widor, to establish the French 'organ symphony'. Besides composing much organ and sacred vocal music, he made numerous editions of 16th-to 18th-century organ works.(c)Groves Dictionaries, MacMillan Publishers Limited, UK
