Firmin Swinnen - Aria


Recommended Posts

Can anyone point me in the direction of the music for this piece? I think it was part of the St.Cecilia series by H.W. Gray.

​Swinnen was a Belgian, who was an organist at Antwerp Cathedral, before moving to the UK, and finally the USA where he was a noted liturgical and theatre organist. He was also organist-in-residence at the Longwood Gardens estate for over thirty years.

​Some of his music is available in reprints from Michael's Music Service, but I've hit a brick wall with the above. If anyone has an unwanted copy lying about, I'd be happy to give it a new home!

​Kind regards to all

You could maybe try pinging an email to Michael Johnston at Michael's Music - he may not publish the piece but is a mine of information. Prof. Thomas Murray at Yale might also be able to assist as I have a feeling he has recorded pieces by Swinnen on the Longwood Gardens organ.
