CHARLES TOURNEMIRE (1870 - 1939)
Noted as an organist, Tournemire was a pupil of Widor and of César Franck. He served as organist at the Paris church of Ste Clotilde. Much of his music reflects his deeply held religious beliefs.
Orchestral and Choral Music
Tournemire’s orchestral music includes eight symphonies, written during the first quarter of the 20th century. His choral works are often of overt religious inspiration, but many of these remain unpublished.
