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

I recall that Salomé was recommended for many major jobs, but for some reason, probably political, he never "got the big one," remaining as the "assistant" at La Trinité for the bulk of his career.

Rather than try to squeeze in some interesting facts, I'll give the link, so you can read the whole story:éodore_Salomé

"Offertoire" is the sixth piece in "Dix pièces pour orgue, Op. 48". It is dedicated: "à J. Kendrick Pyne".

J(ames). Kendrick Pyne (1852-1938) came from a musical family. His father was organist of Bath Abbey, and his uncle was a well-known tenor soloist. He was a student of S. S. Wesley, and organist of Chichester and Manchester Cathedrals.

"Offertoire" is a lovely piece. I really enjoyed playing it, and think I got it to "sing" nicely. It would work well if you had an extended space to fill in a service, or as a prelude.

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of J. Kendrick Pyne, a photo of Chichester and two of Manchester Cathedral, and a period picture of La Trinité in Paris.

"Epithalame" (Wedding Hymne), Op. 48, No. 7" coming tomorrow - or as soon as I can learn it. :-)
