FElix-Alexandre Guilmant 1837-1911. Alex Guilmant was a French organist and composer. He was a student of his father, then of Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens. In 1871 he was appointed organist of la TrinitE church in Paris, a position he held for 25 years. Guilmant created the Schola Cantorum in 1894 with Charles Bordes and Vincent d'Indy. In 1896 he succeeded Charles-Marie Widor as organ teacher of the Conservatoire de Paris. Throughout he pursued a virtuoso career in Europe and the USA. In 1904 he gave a celebrated series of 40 recitals on the largest organ in the world, the St. Louis Exposition organ. Guilmant was an accomplished composer, particularly for his own instrument, the organ. His organ repertoire includes his 18 collections of Pieces in Differing Styles, the more liturgical Sixty Pieces in Gregorian Tonality and his 12 books of the Liturgical Organist. He also wrote chamber music, vocal music, a sinfonia cantata Ariane and a lyric scene Bathsheba. His Morceau Symphonique was completed in 1902 as an examination piece for the trombone students at the Paris Conservatory. The lyric opening in e flat minor gives way to an allegro in the parallel major key. The contrasting slow and fast sections display different aspe
