Théodore-César Salomé (20 January 1834 – 26 July 1896) was born in Paris. He completed all of his musical studies at the Conservatoire de Paris, under the tutelage of François Bazin for harmony and accompaniment, and François Benoist for organ. He won several honorable awards, including: second prize in harmony (1855), second prize in organ and in harmony (1856), second and third prize in harmony and organ (1857), and second prize in harmony (1859). His cantata Atala was awarded the premier Second Grand Prix of the Prix de Rome in 1861. In the same year Théodore Dubois was awarded the first grand prize, and Eugène Anthiome and Titus Constantin won the deuxième Second Grand Prix.
He was highly regarded, and served as "Choir Organist" at La Trinite in Paris for many years.

When I was trying to select a postlude yesterday, I also downloaded this one, and I thought it was a nice piece, so, I learned and recorded it this afternoon.
As I said with the C major Grand Chœur, I just can't get over how "English Victorian" this sounds... ;-)
The score is included, as well as the MIDI file, a photo of Théodore Salomé, and a photo of the church of La Trinite in Paris.
