French composer Antoine Tisné (1932–1998) was born in Lourdes and studied at the Paris Conservatory with Darius Milhaud, André Jolivet, and Jean Rivier. He served as Chief Inspector of Music for the French Department of Cultural Affairs from 1962–92 and composed more than three hundred musical works, ranging from major virtuoso pieces to teaching works for students. Many of his works are inspired by astronomy and the cosmos. Though largely atonal in its harmonic dimension, Tisné’s eclectic musical language always focused strongly on lyrical and emotional expression, as well as examining the overlap between atonal and tonal structures.

The “Sept petits preludes” (1989) were the last of a number of organ works written during his career. These atmospheric pieces unfold simply, ranging from the quiet stasis of the first prelude to the stirring hymn of the seventh.
