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 Trinité in Paris for many years.

This upload is really a "test" for the full organ, in varying degrees. The sound is grand indeed, but we want to make sure that the sound is "accurate and representative" of the true Peterborough sound.

This performance uses just about all there is, including a brief "fanfare" for the wonderful Solo tubas.

If you're looking for a grand Easter postlude, but also wanting something that is brief, but still makes a big impact, you may want to take a look at this piece. :-)

The score is attached below, as well as two photos of Théodore Salomé, a period picture of La Trinité in Paris, and two of Peterborough Cathedral.

For tomorrow, April 1st, J. Purcell Mansfield's arrangement of Hugh Roberton's "All in the April Evening".
