Eugène Gigout (23 March 1844 – 9 December 1925) was born in Nancy, and died in Paris. A pupil of Camille Saint-Saëns, he served as the organist of the French capital's Saint-Augustin Church for 62 years. He became widely known as a teacher and his output as a composer was considerable. Renowned as an expert improviser, he also founded his own music school. His nephew by marriage was Léon Boëllmann, another distinguished French composer and organist.

This work comes from "6 Pièces d'orgue," published by Durand in 1881, and is the second in the collection.

Since today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, I felt compelled to do a "Communion," and this little "rustic thing" is what I came up with. Since I had done the Vierne, I wanted to keep it French... :-)

I rather like it, but the Voix Humaine may not be to everyone's taste!

Several photos of Gigout, and a period one of Saint Augustin are attached below.
