Soorjo Alexander William Langobard Oliphant Chuckerbutty (1884–1960) (A.K.A. Wilson Oliphant) was an English composer and an organist of Anglo-Indian descent who played in both cinemas and churches. He was a grandson of Surgeon-major Goodeve Chuckerbutty, and a nephew by marriage of Sir Ganendra Roy, Director of Posts and Telegraphs in India; his maternal grandfather was journalist William Oliphant.

Little known as a composer (except for his piece "Pæan" which is only "well-known" work. He wrote mainly for organ, began playing the piano at six, and was composing by 14. His careers in church and cinema occurred simultaneously. He was Assistant Organist of Southwark Cathedral, c. 1908-1914, and Organist and Choirmaster, Holy Trinity Church, Paddington from 1909-1948.

His writings about work as a theater organist is interesting and insightful, and can be found here:

"Pæan - A Song of Triumph" is not an easy piece, especially if you take it at the indicated MM. No doubt it was a crowd pleaser!
