LOUIS LEFÉBURE-WELY (1817 - 1869)
Alfred Lefébure-Wely succeeded his father as organist at the Paris church of St. Roch, later becoming organist at La Madeleine and, in 1865, at Saint-Sulpice. He was among the most distinguished organists of his time, associated with the organ-builder Cavaillé-Coll in various experimental instruments.
Lefébure-Wely had further distinction as a player of the harmonium, an instrument for which he wrote various compositions. He also composed liturgical music for the organ and a number of piano pieces, including two Duo symphoniques for two pianos.
